Ladybird Larva

Ladybird Larva


 The lolloping ladybird larva

Stands and raises its arms

“Lord, O Lord, I’d much rather

Be dead, than cope with these qualms!”


He cries it out to the heavens!

He screams it down at the plants!

“I hate my flower, I want to fly!”

He bellows and bawls and rants!


The larva curls up, closes its eyes.

The gardener has insecticide

Swats away flashing flies




The larva he has spied!
