Bless this house, oh Lord, we cry.
Please keep it cool in mid-July.
Bless the walls where termites dine,
While ants and roaches march in time.
Bless our yard where spiders pass
Fire ant castles in the grass.
Bless the garage, a home to please
Rattlesnakes, scorpions, ticks and fleas.
Bless the palo verde bugs, two by two,
the gnats and mosquitoes that feed on you.
Millions of creatures that fly or crawl,
Lord, you've put them all!
But this is home, and here we'll stay,
So thank you Lord, for insect spray.
As I get the house ready for 100 guests this weekend - the sewer system backs up again. The plumber was here just a week and a half ago. I am doing the two step here. One step forward, two steps back. Oh my!
