Oh how I want to stop scratching
This itching is driving me mad
There are bites all over my body
And they are starting to look rather bad!
My ankle is already swollen
The skin is so tender and tight
I don’t know when all of this started
But it is looking horrendous tonight
My body is lumpy and bumpy
Where I have been bitten to bits
The cream I put on has done nothing
This scratching is really the pits!
My nails are continuously raking
And opening the scab up again
There is this continuing cycle
A mixture of pleasure and pain!
I am getting fed up of this torture
Without any sign of reprise
If this carries on for much longer
I will get myself treated for fleas!
