Aggressive little buggers
for such petite flyers.
Mid-air hovering on invisible wings
greedily hungrily stabbing slender tongues
into high-octane sugar water.
Possessive territorial and
vibrating at a rate
that cannot allow relaxation.
Sun reflects glimpses of vibrant heads
but, eye-catching is not often nice.
Dive bombers with evil intent to harm
people, dog, squirrel, or another.
If they were humans
they would be slender, chain smoking,
bitches, that drink too much
Splenda sweet coffee and talked trash
as they dyed their hair unnatural colors.
