Golden Tortoise Beetle

There once was a beetle, I didn’t yet know
he named himself Golden, not Gordon or Snow
He was, so some said, a tortoise disguised
Whenever I saw him, I got rather bug-eyed!

He chortled and chuckled, all this way n that
He giggled and squiggled all over the map!
On part of his body, he wore a gold hat
He gleamed like a jewel on a lavish cravat!

My eyes went all goggly and gooey and dewy
My heart went all sappy and soggy and oohie
I squealed when I saw him and straight up I sat
As his beautiful gold turned to red, spotted black!
