Climbing The Lila

Climbing the lila where my father
parked the tractor when he came home for lunch

I inadvertently
shoved my head up into a yellowjacket nest

I ran to the well where mother
kept a large tub full of water

(luckily for me) and I jumped in
submerged myself

thankful yellowjackets can’t swim
or that would have been it for my little behind.
