Kind And Useful Slugs - Poem by Sharon Jane Lansbury

Henrietta said to me:
‘I am a warm and cosy bee -
whereas I used to say to you
that icy wind blows in and through

The holes within my doors and walls
as soon as Wintertime befalls,
I’m pleased to say I’ve found some plugs
in some very kindly slugs!

I know it sounds a bit ridiculous
but when arranged in perpendiculous,
I thought that maybe, just perhaps
these creatures might fill all the gaps!

It’s working well, I’m pleased as punch!
And every day they get free lunch,
so we’re a happy honeycomb
Snug within our draftless home!

I do declare, make no excuses:
Even slugs can have their uses! ’
