I don't think lice
are very nice.

They check in with their nits
like your head is the Ritz.

They come by the dozens
and bring all their cousins.

They make your scalp itch
'til you scream like a witch.

Every hair is a slide
where they can crawl down and hide.

The nits cling to your roots
like mud clings to your boots.
