As Buzz the
mozzie walked out on the stage the dancers twirled,
and lines of
pretty gadflies trod the boards,
evening of the year in all the insect world:
The Bugs and
Beetles Golden Globe Awards!
was cheering, and he waited to be heard,
tux he looked so suave and cool,
microphone was handed to him by a ladybird,
and cried: "Good evening! Six Legs Rule!"
The moths up
on the mezzanine went crazy with delight,
howled and went into a dance,
a row of
aphids cheered as several dragonflies took flight,
started hugging all the ants!
award: For Excellence in Shedding Skin and Shell,
won, and gave a tearful speech,
her Mum and Dad and thanked the audience as well,
to give a great big kiss to each!
award - for Color - caused a stir, to say the least,
won, the butterflies were mad,
were crying foul, demanding details be released,
the head judge was her Dad!
band then played a tune: "I Saw Her Larva There"
won the Best Supporting Bugs,
then all the
fleas applauded as a dust mite with long hair
that he'd indulged in social drugs!
finale came, antennas bristled in the heat,
announced the winner: Nancy Gnat!
fireflies protested but were thrown into the street,
vote was final - that was that!
after-party started and the drinks were free and strong,
mantis starlet was a mess,
the wasp who
won "Best Thorax" gaily burst into a song,
promptly threw up on her dress!
came too soon, with goodbye hugs and kisses sought,
the bee boys
weaved a course back to their hive,
returned to normal, but all insects had one thought:
couldn't wait for next year to arrive!
