Contest Entry

Answers.com is running a contest, and this is my entry.

For all intents and purposes,
The yo-yo is a toy--
A ubiquitous thing on a string
To delight both girl and boy.
But over in Belize,
It serves another cause:
It kills the brown recluse spider,
And it’s required by several laws.
This may sound quite quixotic,
Something you’d like to abrogate,
But you’ve got to stop those critters
Before they start to mate.
If you’re in need of money,
It’s a matter of quid pro quo:
For every one you squash,
You get a lot of dough.
But you can’t just be perfunctory;
Dedication is the key.
And if you have melissophobia,
You can also kill a bee.
