The Bug, The Bee And The Box

Nae's Nest —  February 23, 2012 — Leave a comment

While I was busy washing some dishes

The boys decided to do a little mischief

I can hear them as they giggle upstairs

What they were up too, I was completely unaware

They were playing with a great big box

Bee, the schemer, had an idea!

What fun it would be if Bug, the pigeon,

Went down the stairs while inside the bin!

Bug, always eager and willing

Climbs inside the box and teeters at the top of the stairs

He is anxious for his ride

And Bee is more than happy to oblige

3, 2, 1 The box flies

Bee hides

Bug cries

He slammed into a wall and shot of out the box like a rocket!

Bee went deeper into hiding

Bug jumps up on his skinny little legs

He picks up a dust bunny he sees on the floor

Bug holds it out to me and tearfully proclaims

“I knocked my brains out!”

It was very difficult to have sympathy

For my  crying little boy

As he inspects the dust bunny

He believes to be his brains

Which he found on the floor

Finally, I just couldn’t help it

I burst out laughing

My son looks at me in shock!

I told him it was just a dust bunny

His brains were fully intact

Bug begins to laugh with me

And the deeply hidden Bee

Made his presence known

Sensing he might be “safe” now

The three of us

Laughing together

Creating a memory

Remembered just now

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.
