The Flea
by Seth Brown

(with apologies to Joyce Kilmer)

I think that I shall never see
A poem as irksome as a flea

A flea concerned with staying warm
By living in my college dorm

A flea that's buzzing at high rate
And making noise I can't locate

A flea which is a constant pest
Disturbing both my work and rest

A flea who simply can't be caught
The insect I wish I could swat

Both fish and fowl are fine by me
But damn I really hate this flea
