The heat drives out the midges
But nature abhors a vacuum
It fills the void with horseflies
Their formations take to the skies
Into a theatre of chemical warfare
Deet is not atomic unfortunately
A walk becomes a re-enactment
Of some ancient Battle of Britain
And the invading winged devils
Rewrite our history and win
Even if...
The swat is mightier than the sword
