The Hive

The Hive

All it took

was one vicious winged-thing

to impregnate itself in drunken revelry


Soared to the skies

to find a good place to give birth

and scatter its children to torment


Funny how

all it takes is just one

word of gossip


To quickly destroy

a house that can never

ever be rebuilt again
