Swift swallows swooping over the duck pond,

Swallowing mosquitoes with every pass there on…

Aren’t you glad mosquitoes don’t know until they’re dead

That swallows are coming who want to be fed! 

Makes things easier when insects do not feel,

Fear or anxiety when they are a meal….

Unlike we humans with adrenaline needs

Insects are ready for when swallows feed.
