The dust mite features greatly in the world of mattress puffing;
Dermatophagoides is not wanted in our stuffing.
Besides the threat of asthma there’s the thought that’s so unnerving
of the little buggers round our naked bodies swerving
in a race to see who gets the choicest dead skin flaking;
it’s enough to leave the most disheveled slob a-shaking.
To avoid this traveler hitchhiking on your hide,
you’d have to douse and boil yourself until you wound up fried.
Looking on the bright side, maybe these are just the creatures
that always kill the aliens in our Grade-B film features . . .
