Invertebrates of the Kingdom

Varied species of the kingdom
Across our earthly home
From sponges to the octopus
Without a backbone

Laying small eggs
Or a centimetre long
Astounding invertebrates
There outer skin is strong

Upon an organism
There they choose to lay
Eggs for a food source
Paralyse their prey

As the insect grows
So rapidly within
A time of which to moult
Remove their outer skin

The expanding colony
Survival of the team
Young bees evolving
From a single queen

Shed their exoskeleton
Insect crawling out
Expansion of their wings
Body drying out

Beginning as larvae
From the eggs they hatch
Dramatic transformation
Metamorphosis match
