The forest still looms about me as far as I can see in all directions. I have tried, but I fear I will never escape these blasted lands of death and suffering. The storms came and took many of my kin and all others have passed in our feeble attempt to navigate this wasteland. The foul curse has polluted my body retarding movements making locomotion exceedingly difficult. My legs barely move though I exert all my strength and I cannot…I will not escape.

Break plastic seal and
Apply to back of neck.
Kills fleas fast.
