Forsooth!

Oh bug, thou didst bite,
and give me such fright ,
that with all of my might
thine nose I would smite.

So be thou contrite.
And pray, be polite.
Elsewise flattened tonight,
thou wilt be, with delight.

Most of the picture is so calm and serene but then towards the bottom the tension builds....forever waiting for the stomp!
Another winner!

Such talent! I love your work.
Do centipedes count as bugs? I chopped one in half with a cleaver the other day. They take a while to die, and it isn't a pretty sight.

Bugs...I always feel of two minds if I step on them...the ones that scare me, I want to get rid of, but I also feel sad about the life of a creature being snuffed out by me...what a dilemma!
