Why They Called Her Ms. M
She was a hungry,pushy and predatory kisser.
She didn’t like flowing water. She just didn’t.
Do you know who she was? Ms. M. Her name.
She was fond of people who were too lazy
to empty their kids’ wading pools. Those
were her victims too. She also adored
those who were too lazy to change
the water in their birdbaths.
She had no kind words
for those who kept the grass well-trimmed.
She resented them. She frowned at those
who walked in wooded or lush areas
while wearing long sleeves
and trousers. How dare them!
If ever one used an insect repellent,
then one was Ms. M`s
She fed on plant nectar
and water. She was no innocent kisser,
not at all. Ms. M was a maddening
and toxic kisser. She kissed one
and left one writhing and reeling
from a stinging sensation.
Where did the kissing lady live?
Well, she lived in grasslands
close to areas where folks lived.
Stagnant water was her much-
loved breeding ground,
her happy habitat.
Together with her friends,
they gathered in storm drains,
they boogied in abandoned birdbaths,
in blocked rain gutters, pools and ponds.
Do you know what she did?
Well, Ms. M kissed Mr. Dube.
How did she do it? She pierced
Mr Dube`s skin and fed on his blood!
Ms. M bit him, injecting her saliva
into the old man`s body while
draining off his blood. That
was no romantic kiss too.
I think bloody Ms. M was a vampire.
A bloodsucker. Mr. Dube felt the result
of her sharp kiss: a revealing red puffy bump.
Pain and itching held him hostage. Mr. Dube
whined as the bump became itchier, larger ,
redder and stiffer. He developed body aches,
a headache, and fever. Ms. M was unworried
and unavailable to respond to questions
on why her saliva carried bacteria,
parasites and viruses.
Ms. M had left an itchy welt behind.
Bloody Ms. M! What a stinging sensation.
Squealed Mr. Dube seeking medical attention.
The doctor talked about vaccinations
and medications. The specialist said
'‘M stands for Mosquito. At home,
once bitten, treat mosquito bites
by washing them with soap
and water or pain relievers
or other anti-itch
Not In Recorded History
Deadly droughts drained
And bubbled because of
A ferocious flash of furore
Let loose were temperatures
That made the world fierier
Than at any time in noted history
Seas acidifying, species on the brink
Of death, the earth barked a bitter welcome
To an unwelcoming upheaval of heat and hell
Who Is A Boy?
you had better decoy
a boy, I see a misnomer
in all this: stated a man
they sought to interview
for the position of office boy,
however, he reminded the caller
that indeed he had applied for a job
as a 45 year-old man, not as a little boy!
When I Was A Prevented Predator
A body divided into two distinct parts,
The collum, right behind the head, it sits;
The head houses the eyes, antennae and mouthparts,
The first part is the first body ring in a body with lots of rings,
The second part, the trunk, consists of several body rings;
I spotted her wriggling around with her four body rings,
The male had deposited a sperm packet on the ground,
The female millipede just picked it up and said: what a find!
I moved closer, she veiled a chemical that made me unsound!
Playing Hide & Seek With The Shadows
when inebriation got the better of him
he began to perform a series of pranks,
he claimed to be standing on the beach,
looking at the ocean, watching the surf,
he alleged that the waves were rising
and breaking on the shore, and that
he was ready to crash them , to ride
them with his startling surfboard!
as a claimant he crowed that his sport
of riding a wave towards the shore
saw him stand on one swaying leg
or lie ,play a guitar on a surfboard!
as an observer of optical illusions
of foes in the distance, he reeled
away, yelling for help, a harbour,
tickled shadows gave him a good run,
he attempted at climbing the nearest tree,
the shrub gave his stoned sweat a stumbling gaffe
