Wrestling Flower Beetles

Stumbling from their corners
Each step thundering against the ground
As beetles charged at each other
Plastered in shiny colors and paint
Attracting every spectator’s eye
Watched as they crashed together
Becoming a struggle of arms and legs
Shoving each other back and forth
In an awkward dance like two teenagers
Cursed with two left feet
Fumbling hands and stoic growls
They wrestled and we all watched
Rolling over each other
And we cheered louder and louder
Watching as the beetles
Ricocheted off each other
Until one was finally pinned to the ground
