Scarab of Mortality

Emerald

Blistering

Metallic

The Shiny Beetle of Death

The Stench overcomes, it lingers

but paints a pretty tunneled picture

as we hold our breath

Circling over

watery orbs

Resting upon swollen tongue

To take his very own piece

More or less partake of all we loved

Scattered across the sky

and swallowed up

like dust, by a dove
