Culex Pipiens

By Lori Gaudet

Oh you little Culex pipiens,

At my skin you’re always a nippins

 

Your tiny mosquito bite

Leaves my flesh quite a sight

 

Itchy red little welts

Above and below the belts

 

You leave me sore and scratching

In perfume most foul I am bathing

 

Eau de Bug Repellent it is called

For man and beast it is an impenetrable wall

 

But not for Culex pipiens

For they just keep a nippins

 

At the campfire everyone sits way over there

Not wanting to smell my repellent air

 

What trouble you little mosquitoes do bring

And at night that annoying whining in my ear you sing

 

But are you all that so bad?

Though your biting makes everyone so mad?

 

For nigh of three years I have fought

Diets and exercise has all been for naught

 

After two kids for your body you do bereave

Those extra baby pounds just refuse to leave

 

And then in the late summer of 2000 and seven

You bit me at least four score and eleven

 

Whether I got bit at home or Debonair

That is neither here nor there

 

For thanks to West Nile and you

I have shed a pants size or two
