THE LITTLE WICKED MOSQUITO*
From sun rise to sun set
the birds flee back to their resting nest
the spider crawl back to it humble web
the ant finds it way back hole
The homeless mosquito batched upon my pelucid hut through the tiny holes from the front door within
it make itself comfortable hanging around the unseen places
it changes it direction every dyin’ second waiting for an opportunity to run in
it played it music on carin’ not if any is in the mood listenin’ to it
it draws near closer more
from my right ear to left ear
oh! Wicked mosquito! Why have you choose to make me a clapper even when am not praising God?
Oh! Dear mosquito! I thought and believed the main time of your operation is only around the rainy seasons
but you totally changed your work schedule
giving it no fix time for work and operating every second
oh! Wicked mosquito!
Why have you choose to design and decorate my skin in unexplainable form?
apart from blood suckin’ i wonder if you have any other occupation
oh wicked mosquito!
when will your mission on earth ever accomplish?
