An Inordinate Fondness for Beetles

Two wings for casing,
And two wings for flying,
Mouthparts for feeding,
And feelers for prying,
Six legs for crawling,
And two eyes for peeping –
Scuttling and swimming
And buzzing and creeping.
Hundreds of thousands
Of species most fine,
And all of them based on
One winning design.
