Little Dust Bunnies

Little tiny bunnies made of dust,

hiding under things covered with rust,

we sweep them out, that is a must,

sometimes they fly on a wind gust.

Little tiny bunnies hide in the dark,

under a bed is their play land park,

it is there that they leave their mark,

in their living area so very stark.

Little bunnies that make us sneeze,

they sometimes even make us wheeze,

with them you do as you please,

just little bunnies with no knees.

Little bunnies made from dust,

into your home the broom will bust,

would you call this procedure just,

or is this just some sick form of lust.

Little bunnies they start all over again,

this is a game that they can never really win,

we destroy their home and kill their kin,

to do all this seems to be such a sin.

Little bunnies hide please stay out of sight,

only come out at the stroke of midnight,

hold on to your home with all your might,

and try not to die from dust broom fright.
