Default City vs Country, with apologies up front...

The country is clean living,
the air is fresh to breathe
the sky is clear and blue,
I never want to leave.

But my love of country living
slowly started to die, when
I noticed all the pests around
and no longer could abide.

Started with those adorable deer,
the ones out my back door,
until their ticks brought lyme disease,
and shook me to my core.

Then I startled an evening skunk
and it sprayed me head to toes,
I burned my clothes took long showers
but it still burned up my nose.

It was then that I really noticed,
all that Nature that surrounded me,
Possums, raccoons, groundhogs,
wasps, hornets and a bothersome bee.

Owls and hawks, and other birds
just waiting to swoop down
Ducks and geese dropping gifts
Wild scat upon the ground.

Feral cats, packs of dogs, even coyotes
Once that I took notice,
the quiet went away
and I began to focus on
the noise that comes with hay.

Yakking, quacking, screeching
sounds, never noticed before
buzzing, flapping, howling
flooded through my door.

And of course, the spiders and snakes
and swarms of gnats
the bugs, the mice, the squirrles, the fire ants
let alone the attic bats.

As I noticed all the pests, the noise, the danger
that was always lurking near,
I thought that maybe city life
might be very near.

Out in the country, where Nature thrives,
where we want to live good lives,
we must face the many things,
that Mother Earth always brings.

City life is much simpler, see,
they have pests but only three...
Of course the cockroaches and rats,
but the biggest pest of city life...

is your neighbor, left and right.

So, sting me, spray me, bite me too
do the thing that Natures do
Better that than a bougie bro,
in Starbucks line
with TikTok playing
with speaker on

Wait, what the hell am I doing in a Starbucks?

Where is Pepe Le Pew when you need him?
