The Dung Beetle 

If you eat shit, 
are a dung beetle.

 If you live in shit, 
are a burrower. 

If you bury your shit, 
are a tunneler. 

But, if you flaunt your shit, 
are a high roller.

    • Thanks John. There is something rather sad about a creature that spends its entire life eating other people’s shit. Some humans do the same, metaphorically.
      The poem wrote itself really. When I researched them and found there were three types, well I just couldn’t resist. πŸ™‚
