Mr Cockroach vs Mr Beedle

Said Mr. Cockroach to Mr. Beedle My body threads the 'Insect Needle' I'm agile, swift, and how I jump Mr. Beedle, you're far too plump Replied Mr. Beedle to Mr. Cocroach My attributes one cannot coach I'm sturdy, steady -- albeit slow My shell protects me from my foes The debate continues Hot embers fanned; for These two rivals' return To 'in(ter)sectionality lands'

Hi Gershon. Your poem reminded me of a book I used to read to my kindergarten kids, called The Very Quiet Cricket by Eric Carle This poor beetle couldn't jump or click and not any visitors could help the poor thing. Tough when you're a click beetle. Oh me oh my his troubled struggle.

I agree, Natasha. It's 'brill'-- i.e. 'halfway brilliant.' lol. Thanks, Gershon
