Mosquito, would you go away
and please not bother me?
Enjoy this lovely summer day,
there’s lots to do and see.
Why don't you go collect your friends
and find a spot that’s cool,
or fly off to the neighbors’ yard;
I think they’re by the pool.

There is no torture worse than a mosquito buzzing in your ear.

❤️Love this!❤️ It's always a good thing to have a laugh in the morning. And, yes, those pesky mosquitoes are already buzzing me like Maverick and Goose buzzing the control tower in Top Gun. 😁😆
