Bug Breakfast

My big brother made me eat
a bug for breakfast yesterday.
He told me if I didn't, he would hit me.
He handed me a beetle;
then, he jumped out of the way
and he said to eat it fast, before it bit me.
I put the beetle in my mouth
and crunched and mashed and grinded.
It tried to get away once while I chewed it.
It wasn't very tasty,
but I really didn't mind it,
'cause it made my brother sick to watch me do it.
