Another Insect Or Two

Low Love Life

The female spider
Can't abider
Till he's tucked

Ivor C.F. Treby

A centipede was happy quite,
Until a frog in fun
Said, ' Pray, which leg comes after which?'
This raised her mind to such a pitch,
She lay distracted in a ditch
Considering how to run.

Mrs. Edmund Craster

The Ant has made himself illustrious
Through constant industry industrious.
So what?
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?

The Lord in his wisdom made the fly,
And then forgot to tell us why.

Ogden Nash

Oh, alright then here's a squid to finish off:

The squid had an id:
Id is not nice, but the squid loved id.
