Chiggers

By Dave Hanks

A Chigger is a larvae, of that itís sad to say.

The offspring of a mite to irritate your day!

The mite crawls up your legs to a warm place of respite.

And if that place is moist, it suits that bug just right.

They bore a little hole and then insert their egg.

It isnít long before you feel an itching on your leg.

Those bumps are all inflamed, a fiery color red.

They itch and itch all day long and even while in bed.

I heard of a solution, a way to make them die.

Paint each sore with nail polish Ė shutting off the air supply.

My wife and I are hopeful that this will do the trick!

To thwart the blasted working of this version of a tick.
