Fire Ants that live in building sand
we had the sand imported onto our land
Mostly for building a new extension
but I feel it bears a mention;
that when our children put their toes in for a wriggle
we did not expect much more than a giggle
but instead we got a shrieking scream
as you bit into the tender flesh as a team
I understand the invasion was not welcome
but come on! perhaps you could have had some decorum
after all we share the space
we did not spray you in the face
with some ghastly poison
You did not have enough of a reason
You are clearly chomping foot muggers!
So now the aloe gel has been deployed
and we are suitably annoyed
for you have interrupted
a lovely nap that has been corrupted
by the piercing sound of pain
That’s it! The sand is now open to a reign of Terror!
take that Fire Ants and other thugs
* raspberry sound – to all the creepy crawly bugs!
