“Bug Rap” Featuring L’ Wum & K-T-Did

December 5, 2018

Bug Rap

Familiar things are comforting; that’s why little children like to hear the same stories over and over again. Lil’ Wum is actually the farmer’s friend, he helps to improve the soil and nurtures organisms and increases the amount of air and water that get into the soil and leaving behind castings that provide valuable fertilizer. A plant’s roots allow it to receive the nutrients that Lil’ Wum carries. What Lil’ Wum does not realize is that the bird flying above carries a seed that could become a great plant.

K-T-did: What’s up! Zit! Zit!

Lil’ Wum: Bu’d a buv

K-T-did: Yeh, Yeh… click

Dragonfly: Talk to me… Whush!

K-T-did: Lisp… lisp… zit! Click!

Dragonfly: Whush!

Bee: Buzz lisp… lisp… zit! Oh dang!

While the lil’ critters fretted, the “bud” dropped a seed that would grow tall.

Thistle

Meanwhile, the “bud” carried a maritime plant seed that grew into a giant thistle on an island where it took root and was given the space to grow. Drawing by Meredith Eliassen, 2018.
