Stink Bugs on the window-frame,
Stink Bugs on the door
(Nobody knows why they came),
Stink Bugs on the floor.
Stink Bugs crawling up the wall,
Stink Bugs in the nook
(These insects will defeat us all),
Stink Bugs reading books.
Stink Bugs crawling up the plants
Stink Bugs on the lace
(Check your bedspread, check your pants),
Stink bugs thrive in every space.
Brown Marmorated Stink Bug
Is its proper name.
Town operator Stink Bugs
Of immigration fame.
Stink Bugs came from Asia,
Arrived in Allentown
(And this is what’ll really faze ya):
Before the 90’s, weren’t around.
Now their creepy-crawly reek
Gets Mid-Atlantic grouses.
Better hope your nose is weak:
They winter in our houses.
They feed on crops and wreck the price
(Never squish them – oh, the smell),
They’ve got no aspects that are nice:
They’re olfactory and farming hell.
We’ve seen the mighty Stink Bug
Annoy us coast to coast.
The mean and flighty Stink Bug
Is not the bug I hate the most.
