A Wasp To Her Roach

Emerald Lady

A Wasp To Her Roach 

I sting you with exquisite care

the bug  with two venemous* jabs

tan cockroach this jewel wasp‘s host

now the lame beast’s the pale egg’s lair

in a tale as true as are most

that are culled from the grim facts of state

tan cockroach with venomous jabs

I bring you an emerald fate.

*the passive-aggressive obsolete form of venomous
