haiku for the day: fate

Insects are such small creatures. Yet they can make our big lives miserable. In other words, they do not make good pets.Think about the mosquito. They seem to have no purpose but to bite us in the backyard on a summer night. Or the ant who destroys a perfectly wonderful picnic. Lots of sandwiches and a bottle of wine and a slice of custard for dessert. Or that spider that is so big it looks like it could eat your cat. Insects? What are their purpose? Only God knows.

a wasp swipes at me
I avoid his sting but he’ll
return tomorrow
