Who knew Google
Could be so funny?
Mother and daughter,
Mother in law and wife,
Sat on the couch trying to explain
The particulars of a specific garage bug.
They decided to Google it.

“Grasshopper like insect with extremely long legs”

The intuitive search engine is also clairvoyant
As an image of a grotesque spider looking grasshopper
Popped up on the screen.
It may as well have been real
Because mother and daughter jumped from the phone
As if the camel back grasshopper
Had used its defensive ploy
Of hopping at aggressors
To scare them away.

Mom covered her mouth,
Futilely trying to hold back her laugher.
Daughter let out her standard
Rafter shifting belly roll.

It was great.
