Mosquito sticks proboscis in
A perfect patch of untapped skin
Without permission from the host
Now let the thieving feast begin
Injections painless, touch so light
Procedure done she takes to flight
And leaves the hapless victim feeling
Used and cheated every bite

The needle doesn't cause the itch
She pours a potion every stitch
To let the fluid freely flow
Hydraulic fracture wicked witch
At last the scratching will recede
But something worse remains beneath
Just pray the water’s good to drink
And hope the air is fit to breathe

It's just a quick in and out
She is not concerned about
The seeds of sickness being sewn
Her babies will not go without
Mosquito, harbinger of hell
Your industry is hard to sell
Self-absorbed and bloody-minded
Sucking like an oil well
