To the editor: In reference to "Thoughts on Chagas' Disease" (Annals of Internal Medicine 79:534, 1973):
Doctor Shearn, with his lines
On the kissing bug's bite,
Has detailed a diurnal
An affair of the heart.
But his words, though euphonic,
Have failed to encompass
These bugs carry passengers,
Wily though small,
Who while touching the heart
Can still play guts ball.
