June Bugs

If I were ugly as a June Bug
 Iíd never have a date
But judging from their numbers
That has never been their fate 

And whatís with those Cicadas
 They are even homelier yet
  Their body shaped more like a bus
   Than a sexy, sleek Corvette

Seems after dark when insects mate
 Looks donít come in to play
  Wonder if thereíd be so many
   If they mated in the day

But oh the music that they make
 When they do their mating dance
  The gentle lulling song they sing
   Leaves nothing left to chance

It lures their lovers to their nest
 And woos them like champagne
  The trees and shrubs are boppin'
   At the insect loverís lane

So maybe they donít really care
 About looks or sexy acts
  Or maybe I am just quite blind
   To insect beauty facts

I have no words to express how much I love this poem or my regard for the poetess. Needless to say it is in my library. Don't be surprized if I contact you later about using this in a project I am considering.
