A beetle crossed my path this morning,
I made sure it got safely to the other side of the road.
A beetle crossed my path today,
I oversaw it on its way;
it crossed the road from left to right,
heading for ‘who knows where?’
I took a picture as it did walk
and asked it if it was okay;
I showed a care –
I know not the language that beetles talk,
it may have replied,
or had nothing to say,
I was just happy to help it
on its way.
