The Dust Mite

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 . . .
