Mosquito please beware

With an audible snort of disgust,

I pushed this chair of mine way back..

In my head, I angrily exclaimed,

“Oh, no! Mosquitoes, they are at it again!”

 

Dreaded mosquitoes, they make my life miserable.

Incessant buzzing and painful bites are inseparable…

 

I bent forward and low in this chair,

Swept my eagle eyes left and right…

Hoping to sight that obnoxious insect,

Daring it to fly into my area of sight…

 

Both my palms are opened and poised for action,

Eyes radar sighted onto the insect’s flying position…

 

Where is that buzz, that familiar flying sounds I know so well…

There! Out of the corner of my eye, I spied its flight…

I trained my beady eyes hungrily on its ziggedy flight…

There is no way it is getting out of my sight…

 

In my mind I relish the thought of squashing this insect…

Slapping it dead within my palms is only the first step…

 

Mentally I drool as I imagined my feelings when I get to crush…

This nasty insect which is about to meet its doom in a rush…

A little closer, my lovely six legged friend with gossamer wings…

I’m sorry but I am the Maker your trouble making brings you in…

 

Smash! What an almighty clap of my palms it was in its honour…

My palms, they sting, they smart but that does not matter….

 

I opened my palms in jubilation, I have executed drastic action…

But what is this, both my open palms they are in spotless condition…

Woe is me! My almighty slap, that mother of all slaps, was in vain…

By some miscarriage of justice, this mosquito escapes to torment again…

 

There it goes again, gossamer wings blurring as it flies shrilly into sight…

Daring me, challenging me, inviting me to again kill it in its merry flight…

 

Involuntarily, my nostrils flared as again I snorted my disgust…

Bent over in my chair, crouched low as once again I lay in wait…

Fervently I uttered a silent prayer of deliverance from this flying evil…

As once again with infinite patience I lay in wait, to pulverish this evil…

 

Fly hither, fly thither, fly merrily, fly unerringly into my sight if your dare…

Better warn your bloodthirsty kin, wherever they are, please BEWARE!
