When I opened the door and turned on the light
mosquitoes were lurking just waiting to bite.
I swatted and squashed for a minute or two
and they disappeared right into the blue.
I turned on the sink and flushed out a couple
and one from the overflow compounded my trouble.
When I turned on the tub three more were washed out
and two more flew out of the drain with a pout.
They hid in the drapes and under the chairs
and hummed about blood that soon would be theirs.
Stop! I can't take any more.
I threw on some clothes and ran out the door
to find a bug bomb
to kill these blood sucking ladies and even their mom.
I sprayed half a can. There. That should be enough
that is, if these swamp ladies were not super tough.
I backed out the door to wait 'til they died
but out in the courtyard was one I could ride
so I ran for the car and left the same night
straight back to West Texas where tall tales don't bite.
