The Plight of the Rolly Polly

There once was a Rolly Polly
Who crawled on the dining room floor
 Pill-bug (Isopoda) wandering on a rock
Until along came a young woman
 Who ushered him out the door.
...
Now he is shivering in the wind
As he crawls along the garden bed
All he wanted was a nice warm place
to lay his wee little buggy head.
 
The thing that he doesn't know
The knowledge better not told 
He's better off than the spider last week
Spinne - Tegenaria atrica
  She killed that poor sap, cold!
