Devour

In the heat of summer

At the high noon hour

The creatures begin to creep

Up the plants they’ll soon devour

~

Sacrificing foliage

For their own selfish needs

Bite by bite

The caterpillars feed

~

Soon the first leaf is gone

Quickly followed by the next

They ravenously chew

On the plant that they have hexed

~

Eating until it’s stripped

Of all its juicy leaves

But hunger hasn’t ceased

For these insatiable thieves

Thanks for stopping by!
