Are manuscripts galore.
Lepisma Saccharina love
These readings to explore.
“Hooray!”cries Sybil Silverfish
To all her family.
“I’ve found a pile of papers here.
How lucky could we be!”
“Just what I’d hoped to see,” says Cy
I bet I’ll find a cake and pie.
Sweet treats are sure to please.”
“Although the words seem alien,
And that does not surprise,
Sci-fi’s most suited to my taste,”
Sylvester slyly sighs.
“Look, here’s a book of prayers,” says Sid,
A smile upon his face.
“I never thought I’d have a chance
To be consuming grace.”
“I’m nibbling on politics;
I can’t imagine why,”
Sabrina states disgustedly.
“The pages are so dry.”
”I’m mad for music,” Cyrus says,
“What joy this songbook brings!”
Between each mouthful he enjoys,
He rapturously sings.
“Philosophy’s my cup of tea
With wise words from the sages.”
Sinclair proclaims how he enjoys
The wisdom of the ages.
“I’m savoring such rich romance,”
“Too much of that will make you sick.”
Celina then advises.
Says Cicero, the connoisseur,
“I’ve tasted for a test
Some travel and some history,
But poetry’s the best.
“The authors of these manuscripts
They labored long to write
Will likely never even know
We feasted here tonight.”
