$#*! People Say About Cicadas

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 - 01:35 PM

Getting fed up with all the cicada talk this spring? Grab a bingo card and keep track of any hyperbolic descriptions, clichés, and fear-mongering you run across. Then blow off a little steam by screaming bingo louder than a swarm of sex-crazed buzzing insects!

Sympathy for the Devils

Cicadas can be irritating,
By making a noise loud and grating,
But just cover your ears,
After seventeen years,
How quiet would you be when mating?

Cicada Noise Annoys

Red-eyed fiends that fill you with dread,
Make an unworldly din overhead,
The cicadas, one hears,
Come each seventeen years,
But in no time they all will be dead.

Drone Attack

What an unworldly drone overhead!
Made by insects that fill you with dread,
The cicadas, one hears,
Come each seventeen years,
But in no time they all will be dead.

Entomophagist's Gist

There once was a woman named Ada,
Who tried to convince and persuade a,
Reluctant public to try,
Tasting insects that fly,
Her motto was "Eat More Cicada!"

Terrorist Uprising

Homeland Security has made a,
Vow to stop those like Al-Qaeda,
But when millions invade,
They must be dismayed,
By the underground plots of cicada!

This is great!! Thought you might like to see what else is being said, or sung, rather! Here is a song/video I did called "Sicka Cicadas." Enjoy!
