Mosquitos buzz, elude the slap
dipterous menace, culicid family
living on our block, circle around
the netting, female the predator
proboscis to pierce and suck
the unaware, satiated, barely able
to lift in flight, fat and sassy
tanked up, they savor their plunder
drunk and dizzy, they often stall
while you enjoy smashing them
their bloody load, against the wall.
