G- is for gnat

Gingerly, the gnat , sat
grieving over the death of his grandfather.
The gnat always had good fortune
But it seemed lately his  luck was gone

It happened on a grapefruit
Cut in half and shimmering like a gem
The gnats grandfather sat too long
A fly swatter ended his life

Only grazing the side of the grandfather gnat
He was grounded in the grapefruit and
Died of drowning, gorging himself with his last breath
The little gnat grimaced at the thought

Now, he thought to himself as he took flight
Globes of grapes in his sight
Ah grandfather was greedy
I am going to grip to the grapes.

  10. Poor Gnat and his grandfather! If it was me, I'd forfeit the grapefruit to the gnats. I wouldn't want to eat anything they've touched, let alone squish one further into my grapefruit.
