Not Aliens but Neighbours

Pass Hollywood over.

It’s not the aliens

but our neighbours, 

mosquitos,

will take over the world.

How wonderful—

I don’t have to study

8 hours a day for BCS examination,

mighty neighbours end our long wait 

to meet the ruination;

power plant and bridge projects 

are being shut down

as the mega-projects have 

no use to the mosquitos.

Adios amigos!
