Kissed By A Wasp!
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee… Summer of 2013
It was so hot, standing in the sunshine
My head was damp with perspiration, my hair curled up
I pulled my shirt away from my skin to let air in
My skin felt cool only for a moment
I couldn’t stand there fanning myself forever
I wanted to go inside… but, I had a ways to go
A pesky, big-ass wasp began to fly around my face
I waved my hand gently, hoping not to piss him off
I didn’t want him flying into my eyes, mouth, nose
I had the heebie-jeebies… I’m afraid of wasps
Have you ever been kissed by a wasp
A kiss by a wasp… hurts like hell
The wasp didn’t take kindly to the wave of my hand
He began to buzz closer to my face giving me cold chills
Get away, you damn wasp! Get away!
Now, I was afraid the wasp was going to sting me
He was mad… I could hear it in his buzz
I began to run, shaking my head this way, that way!
Didn’t make no difference…. that old wasp flew in my face
Looked me in the eyes… and grinned
That wasp gave me a kiss… a kiss that hurt like hell
Right on my upper lip… making it swell up big
The pain shot through my head, oh… how it hurt!
I’ve been kissed by a wasp… it hurts like hell!
