Ode to a Mosquito

 August 9, 2012

 

She flew in silently today,

Then called her friends to come her way!

 

And come they did, they came in droves

latched on my skin, with noses dove

 

I didn't feel their mouth go in

and sink their teeth beneath my skin

 

But time flew by, they flew away

and little bumps began to play

 

Those itchy bumps want me to scratch

and scratch and scratch and scratch and scratch

 

How long I'll scratch I do not know

Mosquito?  Please pack your bags and go!
