"Locust" is an acrostic poem for day thirteen of the 2018 April poem-a-day challenge to write an insect poem.

· Poem,Acrostic,Nature

Labeled in the bible as clean to eat,
Only it and honey served as John's meat.
Creature able to destroy a whole crop—
Using as a plague, God made Pharaoh stop.
Swarming behavior is its common scene,
Traveling great distance to consume green.
