Today I Killed A Mosquito Poem by Dr. M. Asim Nehal

Today I Killed A Mosquito

Rating: 5.0

It is a beautiful sunny day
And I went outside to enjoy
The breeze carries the fragrance
I watched the melting dew drops
Crawling caterpillar on a silky long leaf
That was swinging and dancing to the tunes
Of the nature and command of the winds
Birds were chirping with some sweet notes
Ants were busy in carrying the loads
The tenderest part of my heart
Started ballooning to fill the love
Inside my body and to transmit
The best feeling in my mind
When I suddenly saw a mosquito

My whole attention switched to it
And my eyes followed him
Like an eagle following its prey
And my body started moving
In the direction where it flew
And I reached near the bed
Where my little doll was fast asleep

This mosquito circled around
As if an airplane is measuring
The area for a perfect landing
My joy of watching it vanish
And the ballooning heart
Ready to fill the love brushed aside
And the tender part of the heart closed
Giving way to the hardest clotting of the blood

Mind signaled me to wait till
The landing and then attack
And it landed on the nose
And with its syringe like sting
Started sucking blood of my darling
I kept watching helplessly

A cry, sparked anger
And my arms with tight fingers
Ready to grab became impatient
Finally, after stomach full
It flew and sat on the wall
And my hand with a big bang
Crushed him between the wall
And the tight fingers

The blood came gushing out
And I killed the mosquito.

Very thought provoking poem, we kill them because they harm us more.

The mosquito is dangerous for all humankind, but we barely move a limb against it until it attacks one of those we love, or ourselves.. Such is the state of things.. 'Chalta Hai', 'Mujhe to kuch nahi hua na' - this attitude is wrong in the society. We will not act until it affects us directly. I see your poem as a critique to this very attitude Asim. A fine, delicate, and well penned satire. Thank you for sharing.

I am loath to indiscriminately kill, but I draw the line where you did
