Discovery

I found him in the garden
hiding in plain sight.
He slowly turned his head
and then he tried to take a bite.

I scooped him in my bug house
and fed him grass and ants.
I showed him to my brother.
“This guy’s good for plants.”

I gave him to my mommy.
She smiled and scratched her head
“I think you are mistaken,
the male’s already dead.”

She pointed to its stomachs
and counted one by one.
“A girl has 6, a boy has 8
You’ve caught a girl my son!”
