Bert's Poem of the Month

A beetle married an angle worm.
An accident cut the worm in two.
The beetle was charged with bigamy.
Now what could the poor
Beetle do?

There is a moral to this little story,
It really sets my mind to giggle.
One should never fall in
love,
With something that has a wiggle!
