Squashing Bugs: Pesky Stereotypes

All bugs are bad, and they are nasty.
Squash them hard and squash them dead.

Some will, sting
and make you cry;
some will bite
and make you itch;
Others are poisonous
and will make you die.

Always thought this way,
I saw the bees and butterflies;
Not like other pollenators,
Not like other flies.

Buzzing and fluttering,
just the way they are,
