A Rhyming Poem
"Giant Georgian Speekle" by Dolly'sPoems

An insect on the land and sea,
surprisingly . . . quite famous,
this isopod has baffled me . . .
amazingly courageous.

Although he’s ugly, quite a brute,
so big and cute I thought,
this creature was in disrepute
and resolutely sought.

No one believed that he was real,
he’d not appeal to most;
a harmless bug and quite genteel,
and no big deal, a ghost!

As he exists beneath the creek,
he came to peep at you,
we know where he will fall asleep,
in oceans deep and blue.


Author Notes
This Giant Isopod is also known as a Georgian Speekle and he gained this title because he was first found following a man in Georgia. Many claimed the creature was a fake, but this creature does exist. This giant bug has more than 6 legs, has no wings and doesn�¢??t bite. They live around 5500 feet deep and make a burrow as their home and are considered cold water species living in deep water off the coast of the USA in the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. One isopod survived for 5 years in Japan without eating as they are well known for surviving without food for long periods of time. They roll themselves when threatened, live on small dead insects and can grow up to 15 inches long.
