Honestly, I don’t like them. For the life of me, I don’t know why they like me. Maybe they don’t really like me either. They just want what I have flowing like a river in my veins. On this day. with air cover provided by NEPA, they bit me all over till I got up and said “these are not ordinary mosquitos, they are villagesquitoes”. “Dem been send dem” if you know what I mean.

Read and enjoy.

Where do these terrible beasts come from

Flying vampires everywhere

Sharpened proboscis plunging deep into the river of blood

Draining away all the “pound” and “edikainkon” in my veins.


Sneaky as a tempting devil

Wicked as a village witch

They do not come from the oasis of stagnant waters around here

Neither were they sired from the uncleared forest of debris in this neighborhood.


These must-have been trained in sambisa forest

Soldiers of war, marines from the mosquito world

Bold and daring, bit my lips and chewed up my ear lobes

Striking in stifling heat during sweet sleep.


Nothing is sacred to this beasts

My hallowed grounds were not spared

I endured the pain and didn’t hit back

You don’t fight in a demilitarized zone.


Fly and suck this is sweeter than honey

Everyone humming dreadful melodies to each other

I itch and scratch, they suck and sing

I itch and scratch, they suck, I slap.


Drenched in sweat from the sweltering heat

I got up angrily to start this poem

They bit my fingers with impunity as if to say

“Bros, respect us, we are villagesquitoes not mosquitos”.
