An Apocalyptic Chorus (Things that Go Bump in the Night)
 
lady bugs and butterflies flicker and flutter on a stormy moonlit night
a cloud of vampire bats nests among the trees
croaking frogs leap from leaf to leaf to avoid the coming blight
 
thunderous skies and torrential rains wreaks havoc in their might
a gaggle of geese is attacked by a swarm of killer bees
lady bugs and butterflies flutter and flicker on a cloudy moonlit night
 
In the dead of night nightingales and humming birds take flight
the scorpions’ sting brings Man to its knees
croaking frogs jump from rock to rock to avoid the coming blight
 
rabbits take cover in thickets of bush and shrub---they shiver in fright
creatures of the swamp flee the bayou for black sand beaches and brackish seas
butterflies and lady bugs flicker and flutter on a rainy moonlit night
 
the alligators mate with their kind and stay behind out of spite
Jumping Jack Jimmy Jam Jones bones came down with a devilish disease
croaking frogs soar from branch to branch to avoid the coming blight
 
the red moonlit haze on this apocalyptic night is a terrifying sight 
itsy bitsy spiders and hordes of beastie bugs joyfully breathe in the miasmic breeze
lady bugs and butterflies flicker and flutter on a stormy moonlit night
croaking frogs leap from leaf to leaf to avoid the coming blight
