God created a small fly,
His name is mosquito.
This small insect who flies,
Divided into families of mosquitoes.
When dusk has dawned,
and blackens the sky,
from dark brown to black,
Anopheles mosquito begins to fly.
Both indoor and outdoor,
biting their prey,
Injecting down parasites,
Infecting mother earth's children,
Then death rattles on the door
Another precious life is being taken.
My dear fellow members,
Destroy the still water bodies they breed,
Adopt 'guppies'who controls their breed,
Sleep under nets and use insect repellents,
Save your life and save your loved ones.
