Drawing Blood: Join In

There's a pesky mosquito hoverin' around our ears If he keeps it up he'll soon be splattered in smears T-Buzz tries to draw our blood When he gets hit with a THUD! We'll celebrate his demise with a party ~ Cheers! by Lin Lane A mini vampire with wings, in annoying high notes he sings. Tries to fly incognito, this imp called mosquito. With blood thirsty appetite stings! by Carol Connell  That darn mozzie was buzzing like hell Til I sprayed him with a can of Repell He can no longer fly I watched that mozzie die I’m happy he’s gone – you can tell! by Jan Allison That skeeter was in for a thumpin'. I swatted, but he just kept jumpin'. I got out the spray, winked, said, “Come my way”. And now I'm no longer a-grumpin' by Dale G. Cozart There's a pesky bug upon the lawn One his mother should have never spawn making noises here and there wish he'd just disappear One big ol' zap and poof he's gone by Tim Smith T-Buzz flies around in pestering irritation One good swat'll take care of his elimation No more buzzin' sound He's garbage can bound Thank goodness there's no reincarnation by Marti Sutherland I was singing karaoke, acapella While eating a sandwich of mortadella Along came a mosquito Named Little Esposito I smacked him cuz he wasn't a nice fella By Mystic Rose A skeeter singing for a favor Was wanting blood for a caper He's playing with fire His future is dire Joining others on my wallpaper By Cheryl Hoffman A mosquito was buzzing loud Of his bugle, he felt so proud My hands would squash fast That buzz would be his last Soon, he'd be covered with a shroud by Jo Daniel If anyone dislikes the buzzing of a mosquito, join in the collaboration by sending me your lines in a SOUP MAIL.

Hi Lin, a wonderful work by you and the other poets who have joined in. One of the things i can't really do is a limerick. In saying this i do love to read them. I have quite a few in my faves and this one is going right there. If i could do them i would be joining in, believe me. Excellent work by all. Hugs....Mike. XX

When she found out what was going on, she wanted in. I think she has a crush on someone in PS. Obviously it's not T-Buzz.

They truly are, Anne-Lise. D.H. Lawrence called them "ghouls with wings." Thanks so much.

I hate those things too. I currently have a bunch of mosquito bites on my feet and ankles that are itching me to death. This had me laughing Lin and Carol! :)

They can itch for quite a while. If you have nothing else, use your saliva...it works. Thanks, Julie. I like your new picture.

Does it electrocute them, too, Charlie. I can send you all you want for practice. lol

Ha ha, now how much I can relate to this one, Lin! My favourite poem is "Mosquito" by D.H. Lawrence, you should read it:)

I just read it and it's so funny! To quote Lawrence, "a ghoul on wings," "Your evil little aura, prowling," and "winged blood drop." Thanks for suggesting the read, Jo.

I'm quite sure you can do a good one to add to the hunting down of this creature. Thanks, Dale.

You wouldn't have liked being by our pool this past weekend. There had to be a million mosquito larve hatching. Luckily a few bottles of chlorine and running the filter did the trick...let me see if I can swat something your way.

Pesky little buggers, aren't they? They deserve to get whacked...preferably before they draw blood. Thanks, Tim.

ha ha ha I remember I did a poem about when I was in Malta and got bitten by a mosquito - will have to see what i can come up with for you Lin - they rarely irritate me but some are persistent and keep bugging you :-) hugs jan xx

If you lived in a humid climate like I do, they'd find ya. They are persistent but we get just due in the end...smack!
