ANSWERED PRAYER


 

ANSWERED PRAYER (OF A MANTIS)

 

I once saw a mantis praying

Good fortune to guide her egg laying…

She snapped off the head

Of her lover in bed

And finished him off in her preying.

 

I wonder if “Ms.” Walking Stick

Who keeps chewing lovers gets sick…

When the parts come back up

Does she spit in a cup

Or take some bicarb and heal quick?

—J.E. Caswell
