1239 – Squirmers


Centipedes should not be handled without protection. They’re likely to bust-a-move on your hands.


Great centipede astounding
with arms and legs abounding.
I wonder as you lumber
how many are their number.
Appendages aplenty -
at least fifteen or twenty.
To count them would excite me,
but I’m afraid you’d bite me.

For those interested, I’m still involved in the March Madness poetry competition at ThinkKidThink.com (even though it’s April). You can see the current final four round where I face off with the talented Karyn Linnell (aka: Mother Streusel). Read the poems and vote for your favorite!
