The Beetle

maikafer-2410589_1920

There once was a beetle,
Her name was Asneedle,
She lived in a Popinjay Tree.

For hours, she’d wheedle,
And ply her fine needle,
Her work was a sight to see.

But one day she smelled
A tree that was felled,
And put down her needle and thread.

She went down her tree,
The better to see,
And now she lives there, instead.
