Garden Bug

Japanese Beetle, you buzz my head as if to say “Ha! Farmer! Your organic concoction cannot kill me! I shall eat your figs and gnaw upon your melons! I shall flay your squash like an armored green warrior upon soft sand. Watch in awe as my iridescent green wings escape into the sun.” I cannot deny your beauty, Beetle, nor your sharp jaws as they ransack my village of beans. Had I but a sling and arrow, I would pierce your armor with a toothpick! But you out fly and outrun me, you gorgeous pest!

Hot Cinnamon Spray,
Bear thee to a beetle’s heart,
Venom of the wasp!
