BONUS SONNET: Locusts: Not Just For Baptists Anymore

We're told of old that John the Baptist fed
Himself on locusts and wild honey; I
Prefer orthopterans in chocolate, dead
Or perhaps still alive, though they can fly
Right out one's mouth unless well-coated.
But I'm digressing; here's why I've now got
Acrididae on my brain. It's noted
Up north in Canada that they are not
Unlike us, in they're subject to the same
Disturbances that cause migraines in a
Small suff'ring population, which I claim
With no pride to be part of. This is the
Best reason to revere them ever, sure:
By stud'ying them we might approach a cure!
