Ecologically incorrect

I was challenged to ‘offend’ an ecologist with a pome. I couldn’t finish it, as I started to offend myself!

I caught a spider
and put it in a jar
with a wasp,
just to see
who would win the fight

I pulled the leg off
a grasshopper
and put it in a tub
of water
to watch it swim
in circles
until it died

I bought an electric
fly swatter
I like to hear
the fizz
as I hit them
into the wall,
which smashes
their little
heads
and they die

I buried
plastic bags
in my garden
and burned
car tyres
whilst spraying aerosols (that’s aerosols)
at the sun
