The Mosquito Dance

Long hallways he preys
Looking for unsuspecting victims
Playgrounds and parking lots
Children going about their day

Avoiding those he knows will swat
The giant in the swaddling cloth
The sting, the bite, fangs fade away
His time to ponder, pause and plot

Against the fence, his belly full
Spies one more chance to strike a blow
But slowly creeping, circumspect
Our knight approaches, cracks his skull
