Awakened by a loud buzzing
A wasp is in my bedroom
So close to me!
I am quickly up and out of bed
I jump up as if my life depended on it
Run out of the room
Calling to mom
A wasp, a wasp!
Quick, come quick!
Terrified, I stand outside the door
As she enters
And gets him out
Once he’s gone
I can go back to bed
But now I am fully awake
No going back to sleep
So I might as well get up
Thank you Mr. wasp
For the early morning awakening
