Triolet: Sacrifice - Poem by Diane Hine

Mosquito you must die for me,
with one last hypodermic bite.
You have my blood and guarantee,
mosquito you must die for me.
I line you up and count to three,
goodNIGHT! to you, to me goodnight.

Mosquito you must die for me,
With one last hypodermic bite.

    One proboscis' hypodermic prick 
    Can foil an alfresco dining trip,
    Provide in a welt an uncalled for 
    protuberance 
    Post performance of an improv impromptu slapping dance.
    The risk of truce there is no chance.

    Top poem.

    Funny isnt it how much the little beasts look like syringes (with wings as plungers maybe?) Funny too how
    a virus has a much similar look and if anything looks much more like an injection apparatus! I love that line,
    'you have my blood and guarantee' lol..
