Mites

The bites
From mites
Are smaller than a pin
But in countless numbers
Leave a rash upon our skin
The mites
Are small
Invisible to the eye
But with proper medication
These irritants should die
All are bad
None provide a helpful service
And there are billions of these creatures
Which makes me very nervous

    Made me scratch while reading it! One wonders why such critters are here and what they are good for. Not funny but the poem was!

    And there are so many irritating creatures. Mosquitoes, mites, gnats, ticks, ants, where does it end?

    Now I am itchy and it's all your fault. I didn't realize they could be transmitted via imagination. Well done.

    If you get a rash I'd say that you have a very vivid imagination. Hope the itching goes away. Thank you for reading my poem.

    Ouch, I hope I don't ever encounter them. I wonder how widespread they are. EEK. I hate to think about it. Informative, well- done. Jon. Love ya, Toquyen

    They are quite abundant. But we usually don't have a problem with them. Cats commonly get ear mites which are easily treatable. I knew someone that got a rash on her check from dust mites from old cardboard. I wouldn't worry though. I hope this poem didn't scar you for life.

    LOL....now after reading this I'm nervous, .."The average double mattress contains over two million dust mites." Now have to go shopping for a mattress protector. Clever and eye opening write! Hugs

    I wouldn't worry to much about them. You would know it if you had a problem with them. There's a huge variety of them too. The type that terrifies me. And hopefully I will never get in contact with. SCABIES! Now that's scary. But don't fret about these things and try to get a good nights sleep. Oh! and thank you for visiting and commenting on my poem. I hope I didn't scar you for life.
