Thanks very much CoreUpted.  Really appreciate you taking the trouble to read it.  I used "doinked" and "lolloped" partly because they are onomatopoeaic (is that how you spell it?  Never sure!) and partly because they fitted with the "cartoon" imagery of the dying grasshopper.  I just didn't think that "hit" on the head would have had the same appeal.  And it doesn't matter what you see or don't see in the poem in a way.  What I meant and how you read it may be totally different things!  Great to have your comments.  Thanks again
