Some like gummy bears,
Some do not.
Some say they're good for teeth,
Others say they'll rot.
Well have you tried the gummy slug?
You really need to try.
They're fresh from my garden,
Slimy, sticky - good to fry!
Green, slimy and sticky to the touch,
Clever, cunning and able to speak Dutch.
Quiet, agile and lovely to hug,
Loyal, obedient the Elias Zapple slug.
