Mosquito, you have played your final game
If it was you, directly in my ear
an hour before the midnight bell, for shame
I'll have you know, if you should reappear:

for you I'll find my doll-house guillotine
A mini-vampire hunter track you down
to stick your dripping noggin, most obscene
upon the palisade of doll-house town

There's no rest for the wicked, sucker, see
my bloodhound-dogged zeal is no pretence
No Venus flytrap that one needs to be?
Or at your earliest convenience

go find a fire to die in, flying louse
(preferably outside the house)

LMAO 😂 I spent part of my childhood in the wilderness of Alaska those damn mosquitoes were like to eat us alive. I relate to this so hard, I probably experienced hatred for the first time bc of mosquitoes in my bedroom at night, whining in my ears

Urgh yes the bumps I can handle, it's the whining as soon as the lights are out that does it for me.

Alaska, huh? Isn't that where the mosquitoes converge in huge clouds?

As a lover of Shakespearean sonnets and a constant sweet-blooded target for mosquitos (the tiny bitches leave everyone else in the house/yard alone but seek me out) I applaud your imagination, verse and sense of humor!  Congratulations on your DD! :clap:

Our mother God we hold the sword in holy times
We are the war, we never see the light
The order call, we all will take more human wine
And we toast to the night

We fold our hands, we keep the bible in our minds
Our father God, we are the hordes of Cain
And though you run we will take you and we find
Any type, any vein

We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we call the sanguine saints
We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we open your veins

Our father lord, we are the demons of the wild
When all we pray, stand the fight as one
We tame the storm, we are the martyrs in the light
Take your soul when you run
We are the dark, we are the saints of blood at night
We hear the call, when the moon shines red
We grab your body, in morning all we are
Satisfied when you are dead

We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we call the sanguine saints
We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we open your veins

We drink, we drink, we drink your blood
Kyrie eleison
We drink, we drink, we drink your blood
Kyrie eleison

We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we call the sanguine saints
We drink your blood
When the midnight sky is red
We drink your blood
And we open your veins
We drink your blood

"We Drink Your Blood"-Powerwolf

Apparently I was mistaken - I'll need to go chide my English teacher friend who said "it's not a sonnet". My apologies. I'll see if I can get rid of that part of the comment... :)

Oh it's fine. Maybe people will google and learn a little from it. I know my own teacher back in fifth grade had it wrong, also.
