bedroompoem #1

bedroompoem #1
sing a song of dust mites three million plus their poop living in your pillows and feeding off your goop*
vacuuming and laundering will cut the numbers down but what’s a million more or less in mattress bedmite town
they’re ugly little beasties when magnified to sight but there’s nothing you can do except be glad that they don’t bite
(*sloughed-off skin flakes simply don’t fit the meter)
