The tiny devil that spoilt my day!
I was reading the morning’s newspaper lying on the couch,
A sting on my right foot made me jump up with an ‘Ouch!’
It was a silly little mosquito that dared to bite!
But soon she flew away , I felt it alright.
She was out through the window, I was glad to see,
But how on earth would I know she would soon return to me!
This time she preferred to sit on the tip of my nose.
I lay still as if I was giving a photography pose.
Gently I twitched my nose, she was in sight.
Before I could do anything she took a little flight.
Her buzzing sound was back again, it was loud and clear,
She had the guts to sit this time on my cheek, oh dear!
I said to myself ‘ Enough is enough, time is just now ripe,
I have to take action forthwith to end the devil’s life.’
With this thought I threw the newspaper right over my face,
But missed her very narrowly what a disgrace!
My spectacles fell, lenses broke, Oh what a price had to pay!
for attempting to kill the devil that spoilt my entire day!
