  1. Lying on the lawn with poet Pete
    Was a summer pleasure hard to beat.
    But unnoticed in that moment’s heat –
    Ants were nibbling on the poet’s feet.

    While they marveled at clouds in the sky
    Ants were steady creeping on the sly.
    Up the trouser leg, past knee to thigh –
    The romance was over by and by.

    (Cheers Peter – and may ants never trouble you under any circumstances.)

      1. Alternative ending (a la bumble bee)

        Watching fluffy clouds go scudding by

        And splat! Seagull shat right in my eye.
        End of romancing methinks – I sigh.
