Couldn't I be little kind!

Couldn't I be little kind!

I was writing an essay,
on a white page with a pen in ink.
Suddenly I made blink.

It was a mosquoto,
sitting on the white of the page
and swinging its stings in rage.

It tried to suck blood
but it was in vain
as it got the smell of ink rain.

I couldn't bear it.
Thrusted it
and it laid smashed on the sheet.

It was piteous.
One thought dawned in my mind.
Couldn't I be little kind!
