Halibats are the Worst of the Worst
Halibats are the worst of the worst, for they steal purses,
and they wear your lipstick.
But they are sneaky about it, so you put it on too,
not realizing you are going to get their germs.
They arrive in droves in the middle of the night
while you are in REM sleep. They are invisible.
Spreading sore throats, respiratory infection, and strep.
They are the worst of the worst.
What can we do? You ask, now that you know about them.
How can we prevent this?
I would advise you to do this.
Lock up your purses. Put them into the refrigerator at night.
But my cat can open the refrigerator!
You lament, and my cat loves the halibats, they are her friends.
You can cut off your leg and put it on top of your purse,
so they cannot open it perhaps, I wisely suggest.
Is there anything else?
You could leave your purse at your Grandmother’s house,,
But she will go through it looking for clues as to what you have been up to.
And she will take seven hundred selfies of herself sticking out her tongue with your cell phone,
Sorry. Nothing else readily comes to mind.
Halibats are the worst of the worst.
