Muse: The Millipede’s Award

Now, do you know why the animals returned late from the insect award night? The muse below gives us a hint.

Once it happened far away
In the old insect kingdom
Many dignitaries appeared
Hues of diverse fur & feathers
And what a colourful galore it was!

So it was a ceremony to last a day
But took a couple more
Although it took the millipede
A few minutes to read his speech
It took days to shake all his hands!
