Pesky persistence

Pesky persistence


Sorry Mosquitoes, Everybody Hates You

A minuscule creature darts around, here and there;

in front of your eyes, distorting the air.

The iniquitous bloodsuckers, repeatedly they dare

to disturb your slumber with unequalled flair.

Irritating insect,

bothersome bug.

Pesky, persistent pest:




If you did not deliver a dizzying din,

maybe we’d not aspire to your annihilation.

Kindly stop vexing everyone you see:

develop a stealth capability!
