Praying Mantis Poem




In the town centre, there’s a gig
A praying mantis is playing an electric guitar
He’s singing in to a little microphone
And after, maybe he’ll even try and eat it
A monster dances on the corner of the street
Several hardcore men in Muppet suits
Are coming down the hill
Pretending everything is fun is fun
