Bugs

Description

A harper in the forest is an iconic visual. I can't do it, because, in a word, bugs. I don't like bugs in software, or in health, or in nature.

Bugs


There’s a sign on my forehead

Only insects can see

It says Eat And Get Gas

Here at Dan’s Eatery

It’s neon and flashing

Says “all you can eat”

To a bug I’m a dinner

From my head to my feet.


That’s why I can’t play my harp in the forest

Or sing by myself or as part of a chorus

Mosquitoes and deer flies bring pain and disease.

Wasps and big horseflies, and spiders and bees.


If there had to be insects

Why did we get bugs?

Instead of sharp stingers

Why can’t they give hugs?

Or stick to their pollen

When they want a meal

Instead of the pain

And the itching I feel


That’s why I can’t play my harp in the forest

Or sing by myself or as part of a chorus

Mosquitoes and deer flies bring pain and disease.

Wasps and big horseflies, and spiders and bees.


I can’t play my harp

In the woods with a singer

Without being the target

Of some bug’s sharp stinger

Their bites and their buzzes

will drive me to drugs

I can’t play my harp

in the woods with these bugs


That’s why I can’t play my harp in the forest

Or sing by myself or as part of a chorus

Mosquitoes and deer flies bring pain and disease.

Wasps and big horseflies, and spiders and bees.


Even if bugs

were my friends and benign

They wouldn’t make music,

They’d buzz and they’d whine

The one thing they can do

My harp as I strum

Is follow along

They can’t sing but they’ll hum.


That’s why I can’t play my harp in the forest

Or sing by myself or as part of a chorus

Mosquitoes and deer flies bring pain and disease.

Wasps and big horseflies, and spiders and bees.


Spiders and hornets and also some crickets

And blood sucking ticks on my skin they will prick it,

Mosquitoes and deer flies bring pain and disease.

Wasps and big horseflies, and spiders and bees.
