What a pest, in the trees, on the grass, what a pest.
They came in the dozens,
Invading hidden corners,
Destroying the food,
What a pest.
Buzzing ever so lightly at first,
Protesting loudly then.
And again and again.
What a pest, what a pest, what a pest…
And the look of fascination in the eyes of the kid
Was not enough to save the pest…
