An Open Letter To Mosquitoes


Oh mosquitoes! Humming
like a helicopter shoddy,
And landing on a helipad
of our fragile body.

If you want to drink our
blood, just drink, who cares,
Because many do the same
from our soul, puerile and bare.

Learn to sip it gently as a
politician of this world does,
Without making loud noise
without making much fuss.

Our other complain is why you
need to sing music in our ears,
Did you have Mozart, Beatles
Madonna or Jackson as peers.

Learn to inject the little pain-
killer from your proboscis
Learn to refrain from injecting
the killer virus of diseases.

You may sip blood but why
you need to inject germs,
Why help doctor earn money
Are they your peers or chums

With this open letter, we
declare truce with your species,
Henceforth you would not
treat human as your dishes.

    This is seriously funny!

    Learn to sip it gently as a
    politician of this world does,
    Without making loud noise
    without making much fuss.

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
