I made a discovery just today
That makes me itch even more than hay.
It’s little and black and it
Without even making that whiney sound.
So small they are but man can
Swat or not they always take flight.
In my eyes and ears and around
Yet no bigger are they than a tiny speck.
I yelled and swore and spun around
And still not a dead one was to be found.
So I went inside and got out some oil
Their little bodies my plan to foil.
They swarmed around and soon
To find themselves stuck just like I’d planned.
Soon you could hear the slap and the splat
Such intellect - I can outwit a gnat.
