another June Bug poem for the Weekend

June Bug I found
On one of my hybrid roses
Grew a green bug, in fact many
I asked around they all knew not
What nature of beast I had found
Some suggested I boil a few
Recommended this hot oil fad
Salt and pepper roast until brown
Scarf down like maggots on a fork
Down the hatch chased with sip of Coke
When the stomach rebels fake it
Soda cracker saltines will do
Next time pull the heads don't eat them
There will be no next time for me
Trusty sprayer bid "fly away"

Well, at least you could see the humour in the situation, even for the unknown, and of course, the frustrations of trying to garden and grow - geeze, I mean, I know the latest trends are speaking of turning to the natural world as "food" (for all kinds of reasons) but personally, I'll stay clear of anything that bites back, even if it's already gone and perfectly prepared in the now. Besides, who's to say Karmic won't immediately speak/strike back? hope you figure out what these critters are.

fun poem Jim

Once on my hands and knees in my garden i came nose to nose with a huge green THING with antennae that looked like it was from outer space. Scared me silly.

As much as I am fascinated by insects and bugs, I couldn't eat them! I've swallowed one or two little flies by accident... :)

More or less a similar theme to Hank's, Dr Jim! Obviously it is acceptable cuisine in many countries in the East! (if the initial put-off can be overcome!)

"Gag!" cousin used to eat termites. They'd fly in with the rains (in Ethiopia), he'd pull off their wings...then into the frying pan! We'd just stare and scream intermittently (lol!)
Trusty sprayer for me....! I enjoyed this.

Ha... they say that we should eat more bugs... but I would prefer not... but I like the spray less.
