The "Praying" Mantis
People say I’m praying,
But actually I’m just staying
So I can get my fill.
Turning my head from side to side
I take great pride
In sitting so still
The prey is in sight.
I take my first bite
Right at its neck!
What the heck!
It’s paralyzed now, and I start munching
Sad to think it won’t hear my crunching!
(To learn more about the "Praying" Mantis you'll have to purchase the book.)
