THE MUNCHY-CRUNCHY MOSQUITO

THE MUNCHY-CRUNCHY MOSQUITO

The munchy-crunchy mosquito

Serves as delicious burrito…

To swallows that fly

Their mouths open wide,

Consuming mosquitoes per kilo!

We here in northern climes

Mosquitoes appear in times…

Of sudden protein

(They’re eaten, we mean)

By birds at nesting time.

Using every pond and puddle,

Fish find the larvae no trouble…

A few we swat

The rest they got,

Seeing them perched on a bubble.

Mosquitoes to us are a  pain,

To animals, in their food chain…

Too small for us

To make any fuss,

God’s creation has more than one aim!
