Chalcid, mantid, lacewing, moth—
They stir the dirt then eat the mop.
Swede midge, sawfly, boxwood psyllid
Fell the foundation where I live—

Roaches, whiteflies, stinkbugs, ticks—
Infestation begins a fix.
Where’s that girl? Where’s that father?
Give me a ghost ant, then another—

Stick the torture in leafy woods.
Loose the aphids. (Leave what’s good.)
Lawyers, lawyers, and just one judge:
All a louse needs to dredge some sludge.

Nothing claims growth like hungry boll weevils—
Watch them swarm like pleasure on evil—
Don’t hide the termites from the wife.
Terminate, terminate—start a new life.
