A mantis meets a grisly end
| Mantis? Is that the praying kind?|
The one that a male perhaps should avoid?
But, as is the way, he finds himself entwined
Enjoying life, until he finds himself destroyed
Gone in a snap, his head is off
Whilst still he’s copulating
I guess this really is ‘one off’
But he’s done his job. He’s populating.
