Amos Keeto buzzing round,
Sticking nose
In where he didn’t ought;
Ever whining, it is found,
And that shows
That he’s a nasty sort

 Always wants to bleed you dry
He is such
A sneaky parasite,
And that is the reason why
Nothing much
Of what he does is right 

What a total utter pest
Is his breed;
For him my only wish,
And what really would be best
To succeed,
Is seeing him go ‘Squish!’

    Hehe – I’d like to squish a few here too 🙂


  2. Very amusing! Politicians really are pests, aren’t they? 🙂


  3. adinparadise says:

    I so agree with you, Col. I was amazed in Belize, that we didn’t see a single one. 🙂

    Surprisingly, (fortunately?)I have no idea who this is, and please, you don;t have to enlighten me either.
    I seldom switch in the telly read the papers or log on to any news page on the net.
    Ignorance truly is bliss!

  6. Hi Col,

    But would squsihing lead you to achieve what is upsetting you in the first place? Could your “whining” be due to chasing symptoms of a more fundamental malaise?



    • colonialist says:

      The whining emitted by these characters is part of a signature tune which misdirects attention from their own activities, and squishing some would certainly provide a disincentive to others to follow the same course. Of course, they are certainly symptoms of a greater maiaise, and seeking and purifying the foul ponds from which they emanate should be a priority.


  7. Now: how could I adapt this for our Mr Cameron, Col?


  8. adeeyoyo says:

    Oh-ho I like your comment (above) Col! So, so true! There is nothing like that whining to get on my nerves and, boy, do they know just how to whine.

    Being hard of hearing I don’t hear the mozzie and am only aware of his presence when OH starts thrashing around or I start itching. Awful little buggers!

    Ag Col… it’s only a mozzie man!
    Let her eat, she only takes a drop and then she’s off again 😉
    Sometimes their noise lulls me to sleep at night – much prefer mozzie noise to the neighbour’s screaming rugrat!!


  11. Pussycat44 says:

    I’ve been lucky so far as not too many mozzies have been around.
    Maybe the new gecko family is feeding on them.


  12. Aw, poor mozzie, although I do know just how you feel. I find fans are rather good. You can still hear them buzzing but it’s quite hilarious when they hit the rush of the wind and the buzzing goes all chaotic.
