Itus and Itis
Crashed my party
I didn’t invite them!
I whisper to my sister
They make my skin crawl
I scratch the itch
As they come closer
 
Itus and Itis
Are not welcome here!
I whisper to my friend
I try to be civil
And acknowledge them
At least I know their names
But who would name them so?
 
Itus and Itus
Try to make my life harder
But I can’t just ask them
to leave
