Default Parodic Pastiche

A little place holder:

Skeeters and Lice

Some say my itch is caused by skeeters,
Some say by lice.
With skin destruction by those feeders
I think it just might be the skeeters.
But if I had to have bites twice,
I know enough of sneaky bugs
To bet that for mad itching lice
Are biting thugs
And might suffice.

After
Robert Frost, “Fire and Ice”
