Buzz Short Animal Poem

Was thinking of a short animal poem this morning and came up with one of them that is more of an insect poem about a pet fly that a kid finds in his room and decides to name.


Seeing a dark thing flying over me

creepy, black and tiny to see

bouncing into a window or two

wondering if he could look through

after a while he wasn’t so scary

and up close his legs were hairy

I decided finally to call him buzz

because buzzing around is all he does

watching him circle around my room

and my mom swat him with a broom
