Up from my arms they arose, big and small

Some jumbo size, miserable, all in all!

Itching here and itching there

None of my body do they spare!

On my hands, on my face and neck,

On my midsection, and below, What the heck!

On my legs and on my feet

Elsewhere, places not to repeat

Allergic reaction to too many tomatoes and strawberris methinks!

Anyway, last night I managed my twenty winks

Hives, hives, everywhere

Hardly a place on my body do they spare!

To the doctor I will go, get a shot of benydril I suppose

When will they leave?  Only the doctor knows!

That doctor better know!!
