Those Must Fall

By Ndaba Sibanda

Those Must Fall

Fetch your tools, let us march and avert further damage
Our gardens are under siege, their greenery despoiled
They are marching, moving en masse as they raid and ruin
They devour just about everything in their wake, in their path

Fetch your tools, let us march and avert further damage
These destructive pests have no shame, silly insect armies!
Look how they are active at night, attacking our crops and grass
During the day, wriggling, hiding under our garden rubbles!

Come, let us take a closer inspection of our plants and prospects
Look at the armyworm eggs, let beneficial insects feed on them!
Set our caterpillars on them, hashtag: harmful little predators
Tell our farmers to take to twitter and twit: armyworms - must - fall
