Not again ! These pesky creatures
On my children’s blood they feast!
Drowning them each in water,
Want them all deceased !
Ruthlessly I captured them
They wiggled between my finger!
Carefully I put them in water,
Dint notice my concerned daughter.
Tears I saw in my child’s eyes
She saw my cavalier attitude !
“You may have killed a mother there,
Her orphaned babies would brood!”

The story behind : This just happened last month. Saw a few rashes on my daughter’s hands and I checked the beds! Saw these nasty creatures and I knew how hard it is to get rid of it. If I kill it , by beating , and in case it was carrying eggs, then the eggs won’t die and may hatch in few days . So I had to drown it in water, the pest control guy had told us last time ! I asked my daughter to get some water in a jar and I began the process of eliminating these insects ! My daughter saw them drown and started crying !! she told me I am killing a mommy or a daddy ! 🤭😟
I explained that these are insects and trouble us by biting us through the night. We have to tackle before it goes out of control . The answer dint convince her much though ! 🙆♀️
