Among the creepy-crawly things are some that you shouldn’t abide.
Don’t let them swarm around you and don’t touch them when they’ve died.
Infection spreads from where they’ve bred, extending to all they touch.
Remain aware; take special care; for they can cost you much.
A pot or plate where one has laid can never again be made clean,
but where the thing’s essential then adjustments are often seen.
