NOV 7, ecto-parasites: bedbugs


Folks acquire by means many and various

Infestations with C. lectularius.

There's a recent resurgence

(They resist most detergents;

On vacation you're heading?

No! Stay home. Clean your bedding.)

Of this blood-sucking bedthug nefarious.

Dr.G.H. and Giorgio Coniglio, 2022 

Authors' Note:  Details of the legend: The protagonist needed some vacation following a busy time of downsizing and changing residences. A few days prior to taking off on Snowbird flight 203, it became obvious that a domestic infestation of bedbugs, presumably acquired during the household move, had pre-empted his search for a subtropical respite.
