Marvin the Marvellous Maggot

Buzz Off!



Marvin the Maggot was a wondrous maggot,

captured by aliens from Zob.

They turned him into a robotic maggot,

he’s now not a fat smelly slob.

They returned him to Earth on a treacherous mission,

to combat some dangerous pests.

Bionic wasps from the planet Sting,

who all wore explosive striped vests.

He popped out of his apple and checked the horizon,

to see if there was trouble in store.

A Splat! and a Bap! The apple exploded,

and all that was left was the core.

Marvin retreated back to the plums,

this mission needs careful thought.

He was making a plan to capture the wasps,

without himself being caught.

He constructed a vessel made out of clay,

and left a small hole in the base.

He added some jam and a wee drop of water,

and hung it up with some lace.

The wasps were stinging all they could find,

whilst eating ice cream and fruit cakes.

They stole people’s lollies from under their nose,

and landed in cornets with flakes.

Marvin jumped and he wiggled then poked out his tongue,

his plan was working thus far.

The wasps were so angry they came out in spots,

Marvin ran and hid by the jar.

The wasps attacked, twenty in total,

all armed with poisonous stings,

They smelt jam in the vessel and went in the hole,

then got stuck in the jam by their wings.

People were cheering and clapping with joy,

Marvin the Maggots so neat,

They picked him up by the scruff of his neck,

then gave him to Blackbird to eat!
