Lucky Bug-ger

Peacock Poetry

As we meandered down the Poetto promenade back in April 2018, we came across a beach beetle which was on his back and struggling. After having encouraged Android to flip the poor bugger back over I decided to capture his fate poetically, wishing him good luck on his onward journey!

Bewildered Beach Beetle

You laid there, dark, upon beach path

Position somewhat foetal

Gigantic? Scary? – well not ‘alf !

Just like a sci-fi beetle!

All shiny black on the sand track

Your legs upturned and pedalling

I said to Android – flip him back –

there’s just no point in meddling!

With torso grooved, too smooth to move

I knew there was no messing

And just between myself and you

We fled and left him guessing!
