Writers Block Challenge # 26

Ladybug, Ladybug

Fly away home

Your house is on fire

Your children will burn

 

 

 

 

 

I’d fly home if I could, 

 

But I’m lost in this weed. 

 

The flower I’d chosen

 

Has all gone to seed.

 

The seeds have made wings

 

Of their own, and I fear

 

The wind will blow them and me

 

So far from here

 

My children will burn

 

‘Fore my wings touch the sky

 

Why did I choose this damn flower?

 

Oh why?
