The Boacropped+upside+down+cake

By Douglas Florian

Just when you think you know the boa,
There’s moa and moa and moa and moa.

The Giant Water Bug

By Douglas Florian

The giant water bug can lug
His eggs upon his back.
He gives them extra care up there
And guards them from attack.
The mother glues them to the dad,
And on his way they stay.
But does he ever get a card
Or gift on Father’s Day?
