They Must Not Be Named!

Everyone tells us that they are harmless, we should not bother about them, and so on and on and on,until we are scared even to take their name...

I have travelled in the mountains
And waded in the beaches
But these creatures I can't abide,
They are the.....

I take flights to far-flung places
Walk to remote river reaches.
But in rain and slush I look down.
I'm worried about those.....

"Travel light! Take much less!"
Every guide book teaches.
But I take with me socks, salt and spray,
To use on those pesky......

I may subsist on only bread
Or fruit...bananas and peaches
But I don't want to donate my blood
To those thirsty, sucking......

They get into our tee-shirts,
They get into our breeches
We even found some on our necks,
Those horrid little......!

I'll have to wash out all my socks
With detergent and bleaches
To get rid of the awful bloodstains
Left by those dirty.......!
