ITCH HUNT

Itching skin
Crawling bugs
Needle's in
Shoot the drugs
Jerk and twitch
Itch and scratch
Moan and bitch
Lice eggs hatch
Rob and steal
For a fix
Dumpster meal
Turning tricks
Go to jail
Withdrawal begins
Organs fail
Addiction grins

Wordplay is rocking... For some this is a very real deal... You captured that in a rhythmic way... Lice eggs hatch... No thank you...! Itchily-written

Last line excellent 'finisher'. I like the two-beat lines.

Thank You, Martin, for the comment. I agree with what you say about the hidden addictions. So many directions that could go. I appreciate the input! Take care.

The last line is the killer with this poem. For many that is so true, though thankfully not for all. It is the hidden addictions which go unrecognised that can be just as deadly.

Nice one
