Life's Chronic Discomforts

You have a small discomfort?
Oh, I can bring you cheer.
I'll tell you of someone who had it,
Lasting near a year.

And, others I know with this ill
often find it chronic,
not likely to respond to any
Medicine or tonic.

You say that it's just nothing,
well, have your way, ignore it;
then, finding that it's terminal,
a remedy you'll want for it.

It doesn't pay to minimize
you might miss your dire plight,
I should have let you finish.
You say, "mosquito bite"?
