ANT-A-PHOBIA

ANT-A-PHOBIA

A Poem by Ja

    

I saw ants           

March on my floor

Those little monsters

I abhor

 

One by one

Then two by two

Suddenly, there was

Quite a few

 

I saw them here

I saw them there

And then I saw them

Everywhere

 

As panic struck

I stepped away

But they were on me

I was their prey

 

On my legs

And on my back

It became

An ant attack

 

So I said wait

I need some bait

Or some sort of, ATTRACT-ANT

 

So they’d go there

And eat their share

While it was still  ABUND-ANT

 

But first I had

To them subdue

And reached for some REPELL-ANT

 

A can of Raid

I found and sprayed

On myself, which was UNPLEAS-ANT

 

As I recall

The aerosol

Was not so very, FRAGR-ANT

 

But, I let it flow

From head to toe

So had to be quite TOLER-ANT

 

And with each death

I took a breath

And thought that I was BRILLI-ANT

 

But alas

It came to pass

That I was just too IGNOR-ANT

 

Because they swarm

Any life form

It was to them an IRRIT-ANT

 

So back they came

At me again

And this time, were more CONFID-ANT

 

No stupid spray

Gets in their way

They were back, in an INST-ANT

 

So I ran

To the can

Followed by, each tiny TYR-ANT

 

Jumped in the tub

Gave me a scrub

But they became just BUOY-ANT

 

They swam around

And did not drowned

They seemed to be ABSORB-ANT

 

With shower on

I finally found

A way to make them DIST-ANT

 

And watched them flow

Down that drain hole

They no longer seemed so FLIPP-ANT

 

But how to rouse

Them from my house

And be rid, of this INFEST-ANT

 

Did make me sweat

A little bit

As I pondered my PREDICEM-ANT

 

Alas I found

Something profound

That would make them less RAMP-ANT

 

Gave up decor

Pissed on the floor

Which made them a little  FLAGR-ANT

 

So a little pee

Made each one be

A fleeing little PISS-ANT
