It was all I could do to defend myself,
I tried to make it quick,
I blocked the armed assailant,
With quite a long hard stick,
I thrust it out in front of me,
I waved it all about,
I struck him in the head with it,
And I almost knocked him out.
He got up almost instantly,
And came at me again,
Whistling past my head at speed,
To try and cause me pain,
I wailed him with another blow,
And flung him very far,
I ran across the countryside,
And headed for the car.
I turned to see him with his mates,
Descending from a cloud,
Flying in formation,
And buzzing really loud,
And just like Kami Kazi's,
Prepared to die with Honour,
They flew at me at lightning speed,
I thought I was a goner.
I flung myself under a bush,
They circled as a team,
Flawless in Manoeuvring,
And flying at full steam,
I thought I'd catch them all off guard,
Ran back the way I came,
But they had left a random squad,
Waiting down the lane.
What followed was a masterpiece,
Of flying expertise,
Attacking me from every side,
They brought me to my knees,
All I could hear was buzzing,
All they could see was me,
They left me lying in a heap,
As lonely as could BEE! .
