A Warning To The Japanese Beetle Population

This, too, can happen to you.
Respect the garden or learn to respect the soapy water. You can't win. I can hear you chomping. I will find you and you will drown, but you can take solace in that you won't be alone. Your friends will follow.

And in honor of Kate and Crew from Gardening Without Skills and her oddly magnificent poetic skills, I offer you my own humble composition:

Japanese Beetle,
You good-for-nothing a$$. Go
Eat the neighbor's leaves.
