Dragonfly Mosquito Control

Dragonfly Mosquito Control

Dragonfly, dragonfly
We’ll build you temples,
Churches, shrines
Design them just the way you like
Beside the water
You’ll arrive
In swarms ablaze, in turquoise flames
Devouring mosquitoes
Sucking them out of the air
And gobbling their larvae
From the field’s edge where
We’ll build your temples,
Churches, shrines
We’d never feed you pesticides
What kind of fools do you think we are
