Parasite Poem


A parasite,
mosquito
Gave me a bite,
Used my blood as food,
I wasn't happy,
Got real snappy,
Stopped that little dude...
A parasite,
tick
Gave me a bite,
Used me as its host,
Bit my skin,
And sucked right in,
Like eating buttered toast...
buttered toast
A parasite,
Gave me a bite,
I went to bite it back,
Mosquito's sweet?
I never knew,
Until I ate one for a snack...
