Dodo

They come in all shapes and sizes
some are long and thin, others fat
little ones broad as they are long
some with hairs that give a sting

All kinds of colours we come in
circles and stripes adorn us
winged critters are some of us
others have legs or even none

Our main task is to clear up
to compost the old vegetation 
to pollinate the flowers
we are essential to continued life

           DODO

Dodo is Swahili an East African language for insect of any kind

    I didn't know this. I remember hearing of dodo birds and I was at first thinking it was going to be about a bird!! but that all changed with the sting! Wonder if there are any birds that can sting us!! A very cute poem.
