Ladybug poem bookosmia

There was a best-looking insect competition

To be held on the trunk of the hollow banyan tree

Wanted to participate,

a not so good-looking ladybug

With tanned red skin and light grey spots on her wings.


She went to Insecton – a salon owned by Mr. Ant

In a sad tone asked him to touch up her wings and tan

The ant was a genius and famous in his field

Telling her not to worry he took out his magic tools


He painted her spots jet black giving them a purple shimmer

Making her feel ticklish he painted her body bright red

He brushed and set with gel her body hair

And made her all ready to be the winner.
