    All in fun with just a little bit of humor.

    The Bug

    I Dreamed I was a bug
    Within the grassy jungle 
    From across the lawn antennas up I crept
    I saw a chicken pecking scratching  ground
    One  quick swift motion threw me across the lawn
    Like a flying aunt takes flight
    A mountain tall stood before me the wall
    I started to crawl came apond a window
    With a hole so small 
    I squeezed I pushed my way through
    Then landed on the floor
    Nothing going my way
    With my antennas up sense something the kitchen
    I knew I wanted to eat
    It is a buggy world out there
    Morsels everywhere  to eat
    All my legs began to move
    Across the floor with me
    Cracks and crevices hills to climb
    Took me to the leg
    A huge table towered over me
    On  top all I could eat
    Crawling to the top I took my fill
    All I could eat found a crumb
    I carried home  from the table
    I  fell to the floor landed on my crumb
    Starting back across the floor
    I stopped for a rest
    I looked up to see
    It was big foot towering over me
    With that I'll say good bye 
    I am not a bug anymore

    This is a clever and cute observation of the things we seldom consider and you've breathed life into it. Greatly creative perspective. Thanks for shedding light on the plight of a bug.

    Thank you it is just a silly little poem. I would like to write a book of poems for children with childrens stories in it.Different from this one of coarse.

    Ouch, sad for the bug. Good Poem. I like poems with conclusion. You draw us into the world of the bug and then smash. Here's one of a more compassionate nature: http://www.originalpoetry.com/a-minuscule-bug
