I'm thinking over our past week
and what it did entail.
I have memories of a parasite,
and the plans it did derail.  

I found these tiny bugs
nesting in my children's hair.
If you've never had this happen,
you can really not prepare.

I don't believe these pests
had received an invitation.
A little bottle of poison
became our family's one salvation.

Flowing, toxic shampoo
poured on all the kids heads.
Every sheet, blanket and pillow
 stripped from the beds.

Stuffed animals were bagged 
sentenced for two weeks away.
We did not want these critters
to think they could stay.

We've been checking heads daily,
every last bit...
hoping there was not
an overlooked nit.

So now I am paranoid
always looking twice!
For I never again,
want to share my home with lice!

Second Guessing Hair

Looking at my blog pic, something caught my eye
I started focusing on my hair, I couldn't tell you why
I don't spend much time on it, nor is it cut a lot
When I cut it short last time, I was happy so I thought
But here I am staring at the long flowing tresses
and I find myself having all kinds of second guesses.
