A to Z Challenge Poetry

I is for Insectophobia #atozchallenge

There once was a girl named Anna-Marie
Who feared all insects — ants, roaches and bees
A fly on her nose
Sent her screaming hoarse
Leading those around her to seek therapy

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect LifeΒ 

Note: Insectophobia is the fear of insects

    There are so many Anna-Maries around us with their classic insectophobias! Lucky me, I’m not so bad with them. Its the lizards that give me the creeps!

    Not fond of spiders. Even less thrilled by stinging insects.

    Maybe she should be the one to seek therapy. Another great work and poem. Fun AtoZ theme.

    I can relate to it….I’ve seen some of my friends (boys & girls both) achieving great feet’s, one of them had done all the possible adventurous tasks in the world but when it comes to cockroach…she can’t take it πŸ™‚

    I too have spiderophobia πŸ˜›

    hahaha- watch out for those terrrrrifing insects! Love your limericks. Your poem reminded me of an urban legend called “Spiders in the hairdo.” – great tale! Sue currently posted: I is for Issun Boshi. Every Hero Has a Story

    I definitely have this! Ants, gnats and houseflies don’t bother me that much, but everything else sends me screaming out of the area! πŸ˜›
