Check out this bullet list description for why you shouldn’t let the bedbugs bite.
The adults are…
- A little under a quarter inch.
- Sort of brownish insects.
- Relatively flat.
- Wingless or with “vestigial” wings.
- Equipped with 4-segmented antennae.
- Freakish-looking with a 3-segmented beak.
- Covered with short, golden-colored hairs (setae) arranged in bands.
- Short-timers because they only live about a year.
So, next time you put the kids to bed…or somebody tells you goodnight…get serious. Because if any of those little critters are around, it’s gonna get a little uncomfortable.
But you might have a better fighting chance against them if you wear your…
Itâ€™s time…to let the daylight fly
Away, but we donâ€™t have to cry
Because…another day will dawn real soon.
So smile…and say a sweet goodnight.
Sleep well. Donâ€™t let the bedbugs bite.
They wonâ€™t, if youâ€™ll just slip into this tune.
And wear your music pajamas.
And sing the songs of your mamas
Because they gave you a life of your own.
Through all the cartoons and dramasâ€¦
Through all the triumphs and traumasâ€¦
Slip on your music pajamas,
And know that God is on His throne.
And youâ€™re never all alone.
Night winds…float down from falling stars.
Lights blink…from Jupiter and Mars.
They bounce…across the water on the grass.
Inside…youâ€™re in a soft cocoon
Of down…the color of the moon.
Dreams come…when you just let the sandman pass.
