Don’t Bug Me

Got a bug bite ‘tween my toes.

How it got there no one knows.

I asked the spider on my wall.

She didn’t get involved at all.

I polled the ants upon my floor

Their focus was the apple core.

A flea rode by upon the cat.

He took the Fifth, and that was that.


I realized after writing this, that children’s poetry also aimed at adults, is a great avenue by which to bring up topics that the kids should know about. The Fifth Amendment is mentioned and what better way to get kids to ask about our culture?
