Poor Daddy Long Legs scuttles about
the bathroom, looking for the exit.
Meanwhile, Wingy Bug of undetermined species
emerges from Daddy's same hiding spot.

We scoop Daddy into a cup,
carefully sliding a paper under him,
and carry him outside to safety--
a home with a garden view.

I stomp Wingy with my sneaker
and tissue up the black smudge.
I've got limited reserves of kindness,
and Daddy outranked the little dude.

For more Six Word Fridays fun—this week's topic, "kind"—hop over to Melissa's place at!
