We found that we couldn’t abide

With fumes coming from inside…

Our fine water bed

Made us sick in the head,

None other than formaldehyde!

The “fall-apart-ticle board”

In the trough where water tubes moored…

Was put together with glue

That when wet, would spew

Formaldehyde fumes therein stored.

It took us a while to figure

This caused our illness’ rigor…

Replaced with plywood,

The chip board no good,

Less fumes returned our vigor!
