The Electric Slug

I saw it advertised in a trendy magazine
"The Electric Slug" - it sounded the best
A Japanese electronic robot machine
For ridding your garden of all it's pests
It's a sort of cyber-pet
That doesn't need feeding or the vet
Just a battery and an electrician
In case it blows a fuse or gets
It's wires crossed when on a mission

It's clever sensors follow trails
The real slugs make (and also snails)
And when it catches up with them
It gives them quite a nasty jolt
Filling them with 10,000 volts
And for a piece de resistance
Bungs them over next door's fence!
