  • Woodlouse

    There was a wise woodlouse
    Who needed to look for a house
    Preferred to sleep in places of damp
    Needed moisture in order to camp.

    Not a part of the insect nation
    But a proud crustacean
    I live here on the land
    on fourteen joints stand

    Looking about for a home
    Under a log under a stone
    Exoskelton for its shell
    In damp places woodlice dwell

    Woodlouse wise you holler
    When has one been a scholar
    Wisdom comes in many forms
    I will tell you as the norm

    Woodlice live in colonies
    No wars live in harmony
    All do vital work but what you ask
    Consume dead vegetation their task

    I like your poem about the Woodlouse, Pp. I think you should have one more stanza where it does something to earn its title as the Wise Woodlouse!
