“Over the river and through the wood

To Grandmother’s house we go. …”

But it’s not the wolf I worry about

It’s those Blank-ah-de-Blank Bugs! You Know?!?

 

Those with wings and those with legs

The pests that sting and bite

Must see me as their only meal

Morning, noon, and night.

 

Soon as I enter that summer grass,

Near the river or the forest, dark,

They come for me, tick and flee,

Even the mosquitoes find their mark.

 

So whenever I go to Grandma’s house

I spread on the goo and spray the spray

It is little deterrent for most of the bugs

But it sure has kept the wolves away!
