What I've Learned About Pediculosis Capitis
by Amy Schachter

If you meet lice in the street
Don't shake hands, or claws, or feet.

They'll think you're looking for a renter
And make your head a daycare center.

Being included somewhat romantically,
They'll reproduce themselves quite frantically.

You'll be asked to baby-sit
Their cherished offspring, nymph and nit.

Then having left their mark on you
They'll move on to your sister Sue.

In short, be wise, take my advice...
Don't associate with lice!
