The Wasp

The Wasp

I am the reluctant introvert,

With the training to promote myself.

Once a seemingly natural ability,

But proving waning with time.

I am the wasp hovering over your head,

Three feet away, I spectate, I view,

Translucent, retrieving your precious nectar

With both hands,

My unsuspecting lovers of earth.
