Lightening Bugs in a Jar

Put the lesser stars
In jars,
And watch the lanterns fade -
Grin in that despotic way
And stay
To watch your subjects fly
And die...
Kill the lesser stars
With jars.


  1. Your naming lightening bugs "the lesser stars" pleases me, as do the rhyme and cadence, and the light, pretty morbidity; both made it fun to read aloud in my own bard's voice. (And he won't deign to perform just anything, so that's a compliment in itself.)
