Locusts

We’ve abandoned the barbecue,

There’s a cloud of insects outside,
Locusts I think,

They’ve been here since lunch.

They’ve completely stripped the foliage
At the base of the garden,

Near the greenhouse,

I’ve never known a swarm like it
And I’ve been on safari twice.

Andrew thinks it’s got something to do
With global warming,

But Angela thinks it’s because
Of some warm fronts coming up from Africa,

And Brian reckons it’s all about
The great summer we’ve been having,

They love plants and the weather’s been perfect;

But I think it’s one of those things
That just happens sometimes.
