Poem #37 Sacrifice

Sacrifice

Buzzing…
Buzzing…
Buzzing, frantic

Circular buzzing.
The sticky mesh hugs
The buzzing blow fly
In its web of death.

The spider dances,
Excitedly prances,
And wraps its victim
Into its security blanket.

Buzz…buzz…buzz…

Silent death comes
Like a tap dripping slower and slower,
Like a clock winding down to stop.

The life-giving moisture
Slowly sucks away until
Only a skeleton is left.

The web of death
Is a web of life.

One life dies.
Another life lives.

Sacrifice.
