He did not try to touch me,
AND I THANK YOU, LORD, FOR THAT!
For if he even tried it,
I would have to mash him flat.
Now I do not want his kisses;
And I do not want his hugs.
There is nothing here to make me
Want to get that close to bugs!
So, move on, you yucky locust:
Please move far away from here.
Without chickens that could eat you,
I could never hold you dear!

for the scary black locust plastered next to my back door that i nearly touched when taking the dog out yesterday morning. Oh, that was a little too close for comfort!
