“Don’t impede the centipede.”

Don’t impede the centipede;
He’s in a rush (so hence his speed).
His hundred legs move him to feed
Upon a morsel in the weeds.

(c) 2018 Eric Robert Nolan

Hey … you guys think you are creeped out?  At first I thought it was a caterpillar, and I almost scooped it up.  If that isn’t a recommendation for needing new glasses, I don’t know what is.

[Update: I have been reliably informed that this is not a centipede, but a millipede.  They’re herbivorous and quite harmless, while it’s those squiggly little red centipedes that do bite.  These are the things you learn when your high school friends go on to become science teachers.]
