The Water Boatman – (Weekly Decima Prompt #52)
There is a ‘minute’ male insect,
Who will make his fair share of noise.
Whenever he rattles his toys,
He deserves a certain respect.
This sound is designed to affect,
Like the thunder of a freight train,
The female, he wishes to gain.
Such is – the Water Boatman’s life,
In planning to attract his wife …
Mutely, she’ll pop open champagne!
