Don’t Bother any Butterflies

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Don’t bother any butterflies.
Give ladybugs no grief.
Don’t irritate the inchworm
as it strolls along the leaf.

Do not besiege the bumblebee
or set upon the fly.
If a spider walks beside you
let the spider sidle by.

Try not to plague the locust.
Let the caterpillar pass.
Investigate no anthill
with your magnifying glass.

Don’t terminate the termite
or antagonize the flea.
If a beetle is before you,
let it be, yeah, let it be.

If you should come across a bug
you now know what to do,
for if you do not bug the bug
the bug will not bug you.
