“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.
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,
