Circle gets the square.


I pulled a tick right off my leg

While I was on Vacation

It seems that they are plentiful

In that part of our nation

 

He weren’t too fat or bloated up

It is often that they are

And by the time you find them

They could fill a mason jar

 

This one didn’t even itch

Plus I got his head out too

For if you fail to do so

A big ole lump will form on you

 

With a smirk I squashed the thing

While I strolled across the floor

And stepped right on a thumb tack

Fallen out of a kitchen drawer

 

Naturally it was the big toe

The one that took the poke

I’m glad there were no witnesses

To the torrent of vocal smoke

 

So now I sport a bandaid

With just myself to blame

Unlike the Title’s Homonyms

Tick Tack Toe is not a game

Great wordplay! This one I can read with barely a tick of the clock, it wasn't tacky, and it toed the line. I hope you can top that one next time…

Problem with human tick bites, my friend, is that they can cause Lyme disease and that is not a joke.

I hear they have a bounty on tick heads. Get enough of 'em in a quart jar might be some serious money. Thought I'd pass that along.
