The Ladybird - Poem by Tony Adah

A ladybird
Is a beautiful beetle
It is nice
Golden red with black parches
It flies with pride
And perches with caution
It is a clean insect
Unlike the dungbeetle
Doing its work rolling dungs
All day and hiding in its hovel
Too dingy for for the ladybird to go
And they are not peers at all!
