Roll em up, move em out.

Every day I have a challenge rolling balls of dung
Ten times my body weight according to encyclopaedia
I hide them in my burrow, sustenance for my young
I am a Dung beetle, genus Scarabaeoidea.

It’s dirty, filthy work I must admit
But it’s work that surely must be done
Removing all the countries surplus shit
Thus preventing utter pandemonium.

Imagine a world devoid of all my species
Where every little movement hung around
A world just buried in untreated smelly faeces
No places left to sit upon the ground.

So we beetles do our bit in a world that’s full of it
We don’t complain or fail to clean the mess
We just burst into action and roll up the impaction
We’re an international janitorial success.

Hahaha, Foggy I know I say it all too often but I should stop by and read the humour board because I am missing out on such smiles and giggles that could quite easily make my day. Maybe I take myself too seriously. I had to quote that because metaphorically it says so much about life and about countries that I had to laugh. Loved it my friend, never stop writing about shit Wink haha
