A constant feeling
I’m in the way
Buzzing round your
Head again
Please don’t take offence
I’m compelled to be
A source of peoples’ aggravation

Bathing in the sun
Has never been much fun

Flying round in
Squares again
Heat from sunshine
Drives me insane
Cooling hands and feet
Soothing to the touch
Easing any aggravation

Seeing people with sunscreen
Enjoying sun
Leaves him feeling vulnerable
And needing some

In the evening
My time has come
Plans and scheming
Enough is done
Seize this chance in hand
When they pop that lid
I’m diving for that soothing lotion

Bathing in the sun
Has never been so fun

With his plan now all conceived
He starts to breath
The smallest sighs of some relief
But they’re so short lived

The sense of cooling
Begins to fade
Replaced by sinking
Beneath a wave
A white and gloopy end
Drowning in this ooze
I’d change for any aggravation

Bathing in the sun
Will never be as fun

With his plan now all complete
We start to see
The folly of his way
To achieve relief
He met his end
And there for we propose
Ointment for flies
