You take a stroll around your yard,
And see that it is extremely marred.
You look, you study on knees quite muddy.
At why your lawn is now so cruddy.

The signs are there, it’s plain is see
One hill two hills, look there’s three.
My grass! The time you’ve spent, you fuss you fawn.
Something sure knows how to wreck my lawn.

You read you study, you ask your buddy,
Obsession drives you ‘til you’re nutty.
You wonder what could exact this toll,
I’m afraid my friend you’ve got a mole.

On grubs and worms they wish to feed,
And your yard serves up all they need,
But killing grubs and not the other,
Is now the plan my vengeful brother.

Grub-X kills the grubs quite dead,
But leaves the worms that keep grass fed.
Grub-b-gon’s another too.
Worms say thank you, but grubs, boo who.

To keep them out beyond your fence,
There is a spray of common sense.
A mix of water, soap and oil,
A brew that makes them all recoil.

Castor Oil’s the base for sure,
In getting moles to detour.
The soap it helps to mix with water,
To offer life and not the slaughter.

But if they cross your line of resistance,
And fail to keep a respectful distance.
Go and get your biggest bat
Yes my friend your neighbor’s cat.
