Cute! Like bombing runs—it's the second plane that takes the flak—the victims having been awakened by the first plane. Very good.

Quite a few goodies in this one. Internal rhyme, alliteration, imagery ... of which "Phlebotomy in motion" is my favorite. ;) Great example of Anthropomorphism which doesn't take down the reader but happens to be a really fun read. ;) *chuckle, chuckle*

I laughed aloud at the end of this - as well as a few places in the middle. Great language and meter, and delightful.

Never thought of insects daring each other. Very unique. :)

I love "the skeeters on a dare" and I have to laugh at the "phlebotomy in motion". You have some great lines and your ending "I'm allergic to type A"… just puts this over the top. What fun!!
