they came out of NOWHERE and made a MESS!
Mysterious Scratching BEETLES!!
(sadly, a true tale of horror)

LINE COUNT: 16

I can't believe you want this one;
it really doesn't make me laugh.

Our plague's not all bugs on the Earth!
Not all the beetles; only HALF!

An innocent, quick beetle spray
brought them all out to bother us;

They can GO RIGHT BACK ANY TIME--
I won't even take time to fuss!

Their scratching was not half as bad
as their small bodies in a heap

My hair's still standing up ON END
I swear, I am still losing sleep!!

Is there a market anywhere
to take our Beetle skeletons?

I'll gladly give them at no cost
if you swear they're the only ones!
