There are some wonderful bugs that visit our balcony.
Really big wonderful bugs.
Not only are they big they fly and they are noisy.
They live in the trees and when they are all whirring
at the same time they are really noisy.
Not only are they noisy they sometimes fly away
and leave their body shells and wings behind.
Mama says they are cicadas.
And, this is very important,
they are never to be brought inside.
I learned that the hard way.
Mama can be crazy if there is a bug in the house even a little one
if it’s a big one like a cicada she is a wild woman.
Uh-oh, there’s one on the screen.
I must shoo it away before Mama sees it and gets all weird.
It’s a nasty job, but somebody’s gotta do it.
