The Ugly Bug Spring Jive
With the Herald of Spring the bugs start to arrive
in my Garden of Eden for the “Ugly Bug Jive”.
The weird and the ugly they give me the jitters
who may I ask invented these critters?
There are black bugs and green bugs and stripey ones too
perhaps they’ve escaped from the Ugly Bug zoo?.
Grass hoppers and spiders arrive at my door
the Jive’s in full swing so they take to the floor.
The Ugly Bug Jive is now the “In” thing
and a great way to cheer, the arrival of Spring.
The birds, snakes and lizards come looking for lunch
The “Ugly Bug” guests look an appetising bunch…
This is/was my entry for a poetry contest over at Indigo Spider’s blog. However, Mr Piglet has just pointed out this is not a poem. 😳
Why not pop over, check out the rules here and enter your own Spring poem?
There is also great prize on offer. Hurry though, because poems must be submitted by April 3, 2012, midnight Eastern time.
