BRIG.GEN.SLUGS


They come and they go
As they pleased
They lived in their shells
But eating our plants
Never mind that
Life is meant to be shared
That’s the motto
Where we now lived

They even have young soldiers
That eat away
Our little germinations
Which went missing
Each time we looked for them
Never mind that
Life is meant to be shared

They deserved the plants
There were plentiful
But my hibiscus cuttings
They were denied lives
Even the stems were ruined
Being eaten away cleaned
By their captains and coprals
How else to groom
Never mind that
Life is meant to be shared

Plants are meant to be shared
Though seemed ruined
But new leaves kept appearing
Sometimes I do not mind much
So help yourselves

I have slug palettes
Given by my planter friend
I kept them just above the shelve
But have no heart to share
With Mr.Slugs and their families
Go on..Live your lives...

They are meant to be shared

I think it is Siput babi that you were referring to.

Though they, thses molluscs, appear low and destructive.

They too have a place and play a vital role in maintaining the earth's equilibrium.

Never for once look down unto them, these crawling creatures.

Some people even have them for s sumptious dinner!

Ya, it was SB i was referring to.

They are as what i wrote in Saffron. But I never killed them for littering my walls. I just take the hose and washed them (litters) away, while some still stuck there...
