Emperor Dragonfly's Best Ball Ever

Emperor dragonfly had a ball Stag beetle came big and tall Water springtail brought housefly date Common cockroach came without a mate Eyed hawkmoth arrived in style Caught ladybug’s winsome smile Praying mantis brought sense of doom Other mantises quickly left the room Green lacewing came with water spring tail Silverfish brought rest of supper from jail Cicadas arrived with bottles of ale Unusual feather bug came smelling quite stale Bumblebee brought fresh honey and wax Colorado potato beetle was holding his flax Black ants brought chips from master’s house Only one empty handed was elderly book louse Morpho butterflies arrived dressed to dance You could hear the music half way to France Emperor Dragonfly’s shindig was a huge success Firefly made magic with his sexy light up mistress Everyone had a fine time except Praying Mantis who left mad. Best Shindig ball the host, Emperor Dragonfly had ever had!

I love when you write these....Draw pictures and make a children's book. 'Faerie Land' or something like that. You'll be rich (and content!). :) gw

nicely written...dragon flies have been about my favorite little beasties since childhood...did you know there is an underlying mathematical fractal formula geometric shape (with respect to 'reality') that is the form of a dragon fly...just as a cube is squares and a ball is circles...math is a hobby for me
