Teasing by Josie Newhall

by Josie Newhall from Wilson High School
Published in the 2006-2007 WITS Anthology Mostly What I’m Made Of

Teasing is like a fly.
It buzzes around you endlessly without stopping.

When you try to push it away
It keeps coming back to you.

And when you’re sure it’s gone forever
It turns up unexpectedly.

My friends are like fly-swatters.
They keep the pests away.
