Very interesting. When I was little, I had lice once. There was an epidemic at school. My mom was a beautician and she used the Quell shampoo to get rid of them, but my mom told me that I had dandruff so I wouldn't be running around telling people that I had lice! It wouldn't look good for the beautician's daughter had lice! I like the info you gave about lice. I learned something today!
Luv ya!
Patty

Oh that was a nightmare when my youngest was in pre-school and some child brought in head lice and all those kids hung up their hooded coats all along the same rack and so all the parents had to deal fumigating beds and toys and doing that lice treatment! Yikes. Your picture is too cute for such a dreadful beastie!

Dolly, This is a very well written poem about head lice. Your art work is very good and so are the words to your poem. Head lice are an enemy to parents of school age children. I remember those days so long ago. So thankful our children are all grown and out on their own. love and blessings,Teri

This is a clever little poem about head lice, personified in each stanza. Favorite lines: They suck, and tuck, and read a book,
the lice have made their bed.
But really, each part is equally strong. I appreciate the author notes. Something to remember if it ever crops up in the future.

The return of the 'Nitty Nora'! As we used to call the 'nit nurse' who came into school regularly to check the heads. I remember these little bastards from my days as a primary school teacher. With a bad infestation it would appear as if the child's whole scalp was gently undulating. If I found them in my class I was down the chemists for the medicated shampoo sharpish.

    In my school they shaved your head if you had lice! We all dreaded it being girls with long hair! Thank you for your review, love Dolly x

Haha that took me back to school days when one family bought it to four grades in the school, it had everyone scratching their heads! Fortunately we didn't experience it with our children.... pure luck! Beautifully written as always. X Marie

Oh, Dolly, I hope you don't have these little buggers on your head. I'm scratching my noggin just thinking about it! I've never had the problem in my whole life, and pray to continue this way. But I remember in elementary school, being regularly checked by teachers during an outbreak. I have a shower almost every day, but I don't think mothers wash their kids when they get old enough to go to school, especially if there are younger children for them to look after.
This is a fun poem, and I really enjoyed it. Lots of inner rhymes... "scratch/batch, suck/tuck, "clump/jump/sump, boast/host, medicate/meditate, lice/twice".
(the lice think twice, they've paid the price - )
The only good lice are dead lice!
My favorite line is your opening... you had me after that.
"An itch, a scratch, I feel a batch
of eggs laid on my head!" ... creepy, crawly, imagery!
Oops! I've got an itch to scratch!
Hugs,
Kimbob

    Ha ha ha! You made me smile here, fortunately for me I?ve never had them! But i?m writing a bug book and just had to include these little buggers! I have some sad memories of orphan boys in my class who were infected and had to have their heads shaved! Kids made fun of them, i?ll never forget the boys name, Alfred King. Thank you for your review, love Dolly x
