Mumbai Mosquitoes - December 19, 2011



Mumbai Mosquitoes

They seem to be unending,
These soaring hoardes on high,
Dive bombing innocent victims,
Like warring samurai.

I try to circumvent them,
With pharmacy and such,
But the nasty little buggers,
Like foreign flesh too much.

Especially in the shower,
They seem to make a pass,
They seem to concentrate, it seems,
On my expanse of a@%*!

You may think I have the measles,
I know I look a sight,
A legion of those critters
Had their way with me last night.

While they are irritating,
I take it all in stride,
With my daily doxycycline,
And the CDC, my guide!
