The promise to on the spring night fly!
I am the emblem of the gentle weather!
I will dine on root and shrub and heather!
Take care when opening the door
It would please me in your house to soar!
I just want to be your friend
Drink a beer with you at day's end!
To watch the game on your couch you'll plonk
I want in, too! Say I in window bonk!
On Twitter you give me lots of grief
You'll curse my very life too brief.
I suppose that's what a scared person does
Scream and run when you hear my buzz.
But I just want to be big and free
And perhaps amuse humanity.
Next time you see me hanging on your screen
Please leave me be and don't be mean.
I may get in your face or clothes
But very soon I will forever repose.
Enjoy what's left of your summer
And I'll try not to be such a bummer.
When you hear me BZZZT BZZZT BZZZT
You don't have to run or run and whizz.
There's no danger; I don't bite
Though I suppose I might give fright.
Please enjoy your evening fun
No need of air conditioner to run.
While we as insects, not contrite
We will be warriors of the night.
