Pray for Us All

Preying Mantis prays,

Asking for his meal today.

Showing reverence.

Butterfly flutters,

Seeking nectar, sweet and pure.

Fine perseverance.

Brother bees buzzing,

The Moths, butterfly's cousins,

No interference.

Grasshopper hopping,

Hopes the poisoning's stopping.

Such an abhorrence.

Our prayers with you,

Lonely Mantis friend, so blue.

Accept our penance.

Thank you so much MsDora. We all need to pray and speak out about pesticides and poisons used in agriculture. It also spreads all across the country by birds and other insects. Blessings. whonu
