Ladybug, ladybug

   small predators
can do amazing
      damage to a
colony of aphids.

      our roses,
      from a very 
bad invasion,

      one morning,
just before sunrise,
one summer day,

   as i applied the
small paintbrush
      painting hope
onto dying roses.

      a company of 
    tiny carnivores,
assured of victory, 
      as I finished, 

   almost before 
a slaughter of 
      the aphids, 

   a quick feast
for ladybugs
