FOWC with Fandango — Mosquito


It’s August 16, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “mosquito.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    a whirring fan
    mosquito nets
    the monsoon
    memories of the tropics

    Mosquito (me) hates dubstep
    Music (dj decks)
    Stops me wanting yummy blood
    Stops me wanting sex

    It says shit to dubstep Fan……

    Scientists say aggressive vibrations confuses them. Upsets their sex drive……

    Dubstep? Electronic dance music…boom boom boom (subwoofer Fan). Would upset my sex drive too……

    How can such a little thing
    Be so damn annoying?
    Flying round my face and head
    It’s bothersome and cloying.

    Who would think that little guy
    Could be such a bloody sucker?
    When he sticks his fangs in me
    I scream “You Motherf*#+er!”

    The end. 🦟

    I cannot sleep
    because of their buzz.
    It’s no use to weep
    or even to cuss.

    They like my sweat.
    They fly through my net.
    And in the morning I’ll scratch
    more than one angry patch.

    They ignore all my vetoes.
