Found poem (Hunger Games)

I take a deep breath
Grip the knife handle and bear down as hard as I can
Back forth back forth
The tracker jackers begin to buzz
Back forth back forth
A stabbing pain shoots through my knee
Back forth back forth
Just as the knife cuts through I shove the end of the branch as far as away from me as I can
The nest burst open like an egg and a furious swarm of tracker jackers takes to the air
I feel a second sting on the cheek a third on my neck and their venom almost immediately makes me woozy
The Careers have woken up to a full scale tracker jacker attack
