I saw a fly today.
It was dead… it froze.
Stupid fly, there's snow on the ground.
But if there's one,
There are others around.

Hit the deck! Mosquitoes are bloomin'
Picking their targets
Out for blood!
I'm not encouraged by one dead fly.
When mosquitoes take aim
Not one is a dud.

Suck in all the spring air you can
Sigh at the sight of a lilac.
The critters who've been waiting
All winter to dine
Are as clever and crooked as Shylock.

I'm getting ahead of myself.
Spring has barely started.
I must be having a bad day
But you'd better believe
When the lilacs are gone
My blood and I will be parted.

Mosquitoes love me…
For all the wrong reasons.
Summer is not
My FAV of the seasons.

Note: For my own protection and out of consideration for my fellow humans, I do not own or ever wear a bikini! (giggle)

Katy I'm dancing in my chair with this one;-)LOL Love your humor! Hate mosquitoes, growing up in New Jersey, believe me they were dive bombers. One reason I love California, I hardly ever see them.;-)

Oh DAMN, I was so hoping to get a glimpse of you in your bikini, man would that have turned me...

And the season after spring is now called "Bummer", too hot to be out, too much electric usage with the a/c to be in...where do you go from there? Can't go in the car anywhere as the gas prices are a risin', no help there to keep cool either...

A fun write, but you have got to know that NJ's official bird is that of the mosquito, its the toxic waste here, we grow em big, not to forget the green head, he has a hell of a bite, but all of gods creatures, I say give them to the devil, all of them...Peace thru the Write, Ed & Rufuz
