Can’t Be Too Careful

What’s that? Do you see that strange thing –

Over there, by the cottage window –

It looks like a firefly dancing about

and I swear he is wearing – a MASK?


I stared. He looked up and explained himself,

“I have babies! I can’t take a chance!”


Then he zoomed to the trees and I stood agape.

A firefly, a dance, and a mask?


Lesson learned.

Next time,

I won’t ask.
