A LADYBIRD

By Josie Whitehead

Ladybird (A)

A ladybird sits on a flower,
     Enjoying Sunday lunch.
'What's so very tasty then
       To crunch, crunch, crunch?'

'What have you discovered
       To munch on in July?'   
'While you like beef for dinner,
       I much prefer greenfly.'

'I’m stocking up on foodstuffs
      Before the winter comes.
There are lots of tasty insects
      Which are going in my tum.'

'Now I’m off to find a rose bush
      For this meal is at its end.
I eat things that kill your plants
       So I'm the gardener’s friend.'
