Hexapod Queen

Hexapod Queen Far off in cold space A war raged profoundly vicious On a humid planet of an alien race Thought to be exceedingly pernicious. They came to Earth A long time ago. Driven back to the world of their birth– Both sides taking a costly blow. Hunted down to their final steel citadel, They fought to the last being– The Queen hexapod, her condition pitiful, Had no chance for fleeing. The prisoner's legs, all six Held by more than one chain– She was quite in a fix; Bad end to her reign. Interrogation did reveal The war ensued because we did demean By failing to kneel In front of the hexapod Queen.
