March forth little soldiers!

"Whoever would think of a Ladybug
As a soldier, brave and bold?
His uniform red may have black spots,
Or maybe white or gold!

He clears green plants of insect pests.
He hangs his cocoon like a 'C'.
He defends himself with a liquid gun
That is shot from a joint in his knee!"
