Consider the Grasshopper

Consider the grasshopper;
She not here to please.
She eats all our flowers
And the leaves from our trees.

In story she’s lazy
She won’t gather or store.
She eats for today,
Thinking there’s always more.

Her main benefit,
I think there’s no doubt,
Is food for the birds
And as bait to catch trout.

Her legs launch her quickly,
In her flights through the skies,
Her ears are quite funny
‘Cause they’re on her thighs!

If our ears were like that,
How embarrassing, I fear,
If we had to tell secrets
In that kind of ear.
