I sat on my deck one day, just after dawn,
Enjoying my coffee and with it a scone,
A rainbow popped out and shone over the hills,
Dressed up so pretty without any frills.
I ran for my camera, snapped up a shot,
Looked at it later and saw that I got,
Not only the rainbow, but also a bird,
That was so tiny, it looked quite absurd.
I zoomed it and cropped it, to look for I.D.
Was it a beetle, or even a bee?
It looked like a bird, but it seemed to be small,
It turned out to be not a real bird at all.
Mosquito bird magnus, it had me in sight.
Hovering closely, and craving a bite.
No friend of my hand, as I snapped up a frame,
He dove down, jaws open, without any shame.
Hum, hum, hum,
Hovering, here I come.
Zee, zee, zee,
Fresh blood waits for me.
Click, click, click,
Photos are so slick,
Cheese, cheese, cheese,
In the frame I’ll freeze.
Snap, snap, snap,
As her hand goes tap.
Whee, whee, whee,
Easy meal for free.
