The Revolting Loaf of Bread

By Elton Camp

An insect we found in a loaf of bread
But, at least, it was very safely dead

How the bug came there, I don’t know
Such things can easily happen, though

Though not very pleasant to mention
The baker had a moment of inattention

Into the batter the critter took a dive
But only for seconds remained alive

The loaf was baked at a high heat
There it was, antennae, body, feet

Any germs were surely destroyed
So the bread can safely be enjoyed

But some might not find it so keen
To have this bit of added protein

Others on the bread will munch
And not mind the extra crunch
