Just a Little Bed Bug.....


Undetected I lie beneath the mattress,

waiting for the telltale sign of heaviness

that always alerts me to my next meal.

They don't think to look before they sag

upon the spring things that cover me.

Slowly and quietly I make my way to

my unsuspecting bedmate on a plate.

Who's the sucker now!
