I’m pretty sure I’m a goner.
It happened rather suddenly.
I was fine, feeling okay,
until I felt something above the knee.
A sharp pain, perhaps a poke?
I’m sure some strange bug is the culprit.
It climbed up so very carefully
and waited for the opportune moment to hit.
I couldn’t see it but I’m sure
its venom is now inside of me.
It won’t take long I’m guessing
before I surely cease to be.
