Strange Insect
 
The strange insect is very cool,
To say it’s not makes you a fool.
Millions of twists and turns in sight,
This insect is known to make a fright.
A wing here, a leg there,
There are strange sights everywhere.
What’s that there, what’re those?
The thing is that nobody knows!

  

Henry, age 11
