A Plump and Wise Mosquito (Who never knew what it had coming)

A Plump and Wise Mosquito (Who never knew what it had coming)

A Poem by The Morbid The Merrier

A supposedly wise mosquito who never knew what it had coming its way...


 I walked into the room

sat patiently in my seat

when I saw a large mosquito

laying near my feet


The mosquito was large

plump, and fat

With experience and knowledge 

I knew I was no match


For this mosquito 

that lay near my feet

With speed and cunning

I knew I could not beat


This wise mosquito

that I try to swat, hit and kill

Knew what he was doing

and was up for the thrill

and satisfaction of knowing he can't be beat


So I soon gave up

and he resumed to occupy his spot

laying near my feet


In a moment of weakness, 

Vulnerability and dread

I quickly rose my foot

And the wise mosquito was dead

I wrote this in the 6th grade (when the concept "free verse" never really appeared and rhyming was crucial, no matter how corny) for my writing exploratory. The prompt given was "A fat mosquito" and then my little mind came up with this load of baloney...Enjoy >___<

You murderer :O (jk) Nice job. This is so original and it can be seen metaphorically too. :)

Please please I implore you, make the wise mosquito a female, as they are the ones who bite, pretty please . . . .

This is great. Its pure, unforgivingly innocent. Such things wouldnt occur to many people in the sixth grade, but I adore its simplicity. Right on.
