Buggy

Written By: Marileta Robinson - Dec• 11•13
As you might imagine, almost all of these poems are based on real-life observations. Writing a poem is a good way to deal with overwhelming experiences, and I was clearly overwhelmed by this insectivorous invasion. REPETITION is a good tool to use for emphasis; note the repetition of "bugs, bugs," and "they've come, they've come, they've come"!  By the way, HUMOR is another useful tool, in life and in poetry. Try finding the humor in a situation that has "bugged" you. See if repeating words or phrases will help get your feeling across. buggy final copy
