Insecticide

Insecticide

 

The humming-bug

drones through the city

Weekly

trailing deadly mist.

Masked and guarded,

the driver suffocates the city

with a blanket of white mist.

 

People dash in doors

Or take detours to avoid the

Coughing, spluttering, stinking.

Windows are slammed shut

People cocoon.

 

Defenseless,

The spider withers

The mosquito suffocates

The fly falls poisoned.

 

And as the air clears,

Man breaks out

 

To a seemingly better stale world.
