Five tasty minibeasts

    Sitting on the ground.

Along came a blackbird:

    “What a juicy worm I’ve found.”



Four tasty minibeasts -

    And all quite plain to see:

Along came a duckling

     And grabbed a slug for tea.




Three tasty minibeasts -

    All gathered in a bunch.

A robin caught a caterpillar

    And ate him up for lunch.




Two tasty minibeasts -

    A spider and a fly.

A lovely thrush ate one of them

    Which I think was rather sly.




One well-fed spider:

     Oh, now the story’s grim:

Big black crows like spiders,

    So that’s the end of him.
