Mandibles

They crack through their prey
Helping them to grasp onto
Feelings of control they display
as if daring the prey to get away.

A meal fit just for one
Insect feeding upon insect
Quite cannibalistic some say
Oh, but it’s just nature. Correct?

Yes indeed, a natural act
How their mandibles are used
An awesome lower jaw bone shown
Their strength they never abused

A marvelous creature created here
To watch you stalk out your prey
A sight indeed, as you sit so still
Remarkable mantis, one to never fear!
