98.25% DEET

the no-see-ums ate me alive
even tho I couldn't see um

especially my feet
they really got in the cracks of the sandals

it itched right away but the next day was worse
the bites turned into pink bubbles 
what was inside the bubbles?
I didn't wanna know

scratch scratch
still itches
scratch scratch
hurts now

I hadta be outside tho
that's where everything I wanted to see was
like the Blue Grosbeak
a very blue bird
with a beak that is French for fat

so I went to the hardware store
and bought bug spray
98.25% DEET
no messing around

next time outdoors I sprayed all over
knees, calves, ankles, sandal cracks
elbows, forearms, wrists, palms
neck, chin, ears, hair

puff puff
rub rub
my skin was so moist and chemical smelling

and nothing bit me at all

The Beast says
YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SOLVE PROBLEMS 
OR LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES

but I did that time
