“Ode to the Mosquito” (with disdain for government)

“Ode to the Mosquito”

(with disdain to government)

By Hector M. Rivera



A mosquito has sunk his rotten Bite,

the paths of Academe are his delight.

On pensive brow I feel that I could birth

a proper axe to cleave his global blight,

and rid the world of bloody jaws

and bloody wars

to everyone’s delight.

Oh mosquito,

I promise, I am humbled,

So great a bite from you I crumble.

Please lose interest and Fly away

so that I might rest in this fine day,

or else take interest far from me,

the darkest pits of Hell,
