“Pray tell me, man! Which way to Mars?”
A rose is a rose is a bug on my rose moss,
mostly rosy, except for that glare…mostly creepy.
Johnny Mantis preparing for take-off!
Pretty buggy in pink tutu!
A bug with a view of our back patio.
A full-length feature creature, if ever I saw one.
“I know I left a Mars Bar in here somewhere, dagnabbit!”
Johnny Mantis is telling Uncle Tree a tall tale.
A laughing Praying Mantis knows no bounds.
One should never count him completely out of the picture.
At the end of the day, Johnny hops on board his space station,
and heads for home. I pray, he made it safely.

“Are you lookin’ at me?”
