Barney the Bloody Nosed Beetle
Saw Betty, his latest sweetheart
He said, “Shall we meet by the nettles
And give our passion a little jumpstart?”
You see they’d recently grown distant
A coolness had entered their lives
But now with the Spring that was springing
Perhaps their love would survive
They met when they were just larvae
And love was new and sweet
Hanging around on green sticky weed
While their hearts used to skip a beat
Bethy look over at Barney
Her heart softened a little
“Is there sticky weed too?” she asked
Whilst trying to be noncommittal!
This story has a nice, happy ending
Their love was rekindled that day
And if you just don’t believe me
Here’s proof that it’s true what I say!
Everything is beginning to go green around here!! Spring is on the way!!
See Ya xx
