Unwelcome Guests - Poem by Angela Wybrow
Come September, these creatures arrive;
To keep them out, we desperately strive,
But, despite our efforts to keep them at bay,
In to our lives they still seem to stray.
They seem to possess an uncanny knack
Of squeezing through the tiniest crack.
When we spy one, it’s hard to keep calm;
They fill our minds with sudden alarm.
Just when we’re thinking of going to bed,
In to our homes these small creatures head.
They wait until the day is done,
Then out they come to have some fun.
The sight of one can paint fear on a face;
Breathing quickens and heartbeats race.
Warmth and light are the big attractions –
They don’t give a damn about our reactions.
They daintily dance around our lights,
Whilst giving us humans an awful fright.
Through the air, they so love to zoom,
Causing us to hastily exit that room.
Their wings make a distinctive clicking sound,
So there’s never any doubt when one is around.
These flimsy flyers still haven’t learnt
That if they’re not careful they will get burnt.
They are so much smaller than us,
So they probably wonder ‘Why all the fuss? ’
We’d all feel happier if they stayed well away,
And just stayed outdoors to have their play.
