Lamp Burns Bright

The Lamp burns bright
In the darkness of the night.

Its calling forth
every winged creature.

Like a Siren’s song
the poor hapless insects go-

flying head first into
the blinding light.

With childish delight-
my kids giggle at every
zip, pop and fiendish
crackle the bedeviled
bugs make.
