I suspect that in the long run insects will inherit the earth anyway, so this is a battle we've already lost.

It's so handy-dandy sweet, knocks those bugs right off their feet. Causes cancer, burns the eyes, works just great on kids an' flies.  Insecticide! Insecticide! Nowhere left to run and hide. When it's too late we will come to grips with our poison-engendered apocalypse, but meantime go spray those annoying thrips with that ol' Insecticide.  Malathion, liquid Sevin kicks bug ass to crawly heaven. Liver tumors, deformed backs... Drops leafhoppers in their tracks.  Insecticide! Insecticide! Grab your poison, go outside. Yardguard the ladybugs, aphids and ants. Coat the tomatoes and young carrot plants. Wipe out the bees with a chemical dance of that ol' Insecticide.
 Die if swallowed! USE WITH CARE! Blistered skin and loss of hair. Bomb the whole house, that's the deal, then feed Baby nice big meal...  Insecticide! Insecticide! Says it's safe. Yeah, sure. They lied. New ultra-convenient puppy spray will kill him quite dead, I'm sorry to say. Can we somehow not find a better way than that ol' Insecticide..?!

Somehow we just want to kill anything we don't like. Bugs, weeds, prisoners, enemies...and the list goes on. Let's just kill 'em! Good write Lannie
