Blighters And Biters
by Ben Dover
published March 2017
Those little, and some not so little
bugs and other living creatures
that seem to have been put into
place in order to cause humans
to scratch are the ones I want to
I don't know if any
microbes and other germs have the
ability to bite or sting, they are certainly
included in this "gripeful"
critique. It seems each year there
appears a new and more deadly
flu virus that can cause our genus
to either take a new medicine or
agree to suffer.
These diseases are apparently
carried by mosquitoes or birds.
I suppose there are other carriers,
but the media settles on those
two as the ones most guilty of
spreading the maladies. I am not
aware of how the mosquito can
inject its poison into our bodies,
but they are certainly capable
of injecting their little needles
into us and cause all types of undesirable
things. Either we are
caused to scratch, or maybe the
venom has an inclusion of germs
that can create serious effects.
Bees, wasps, hornets and other
types of bugs must be included in
the undesirables for their effective
undesirably created stings.
Spiders and other types of vermin
seem to be an un-endless stream of
enemies of the genus of man. Although
many of these little living
creatures create wonderful dietary related foods,
I am not one to
any of them.
I like the
taste of honey,
but I certainly am not interested in
associating nor being part of the
society with any of the creatures
who create it.
Snakes and other, crawling or
even flying animalistic things,
"bats", might be interesting to
some persons tempted to research
those types of things. I, however
have no desire to look into any of
their life styles simply to write a
book on the subject. Pardon the
expression, but "I don't care".
Of course it would be unfair to
forget about those animals that are
not really the friend of man. Although,
it is much easier to stay
away from those sorts of creatures.
Yes, I think I will go and find my
dog and we will sit and watch the
gold fish in my aquarium. I have
not tried to train my dog, nor am
I interested in watching the cat
sleep on the window sill. I guess
I am truly a satisfied human, and
that is the end of it all.
Now with total satisfaction in
my calling, I bid you all, with no
ulterior motivation, other than an
ardent desire, and with no bites
nor reasons to scratch ...
Have a nice day.
