Singular Pluralities

One house stands alone, but a town is full of hice;
A rouse grain starves me, I need a bag of rice;
While monogamy's the habit of only one woufe,
Polygamy's the opposite, of having several wife;
And one louse makes me scratch,
But it's lousy with lots of lice;
There's only one mousetrap,
But oh too many mice.

Read and Enjoy!  Any conlangs with similar broken/internal pluralizations?

Mau e ki, "He aha te mea nui?"
You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
Maku e ki, "He tangata, he tangata, he tangata."
I reply, "It is people, it is people, it is people."
