There is a long history of poets writing about disgusting pests, i.e. Scottish poet, Robert Burns circa late 18th century. I’m glad to accept this inheritance.
Ode to the louse
By Robert Burns
Ye ugly, creepin, blastit wonner,
Detested, shunn’d by saunt an’ sinner,
How daur ye set your fit upon her –
Sae fine a lady!
Gae somewhere else and seek your dinner
On some poor body.
