Buffalo Bug

The carpet beetle (buffalo bug)
Grazing on a priceless rug
Sent urgent call that quickly spread
And millions of bugs were soon well fed
They couldn't believe the incredible taste
Of this oriental heirloom now laid waste
The insurance policy's print obscured
Read "all consumables uninsured"

    Thank you Carma. Love your comment. I didn't make a note on the poem but it's actually the larvae that eat the carpet. But larvae is a hard word to rhyme. So I took some poetic liberties.
