Bugcatchers

How should one view a parasite?

Is there a right or a wrong way?

As monsters, thieves, or upside down-

It’s good to know, they say.

 

Well then, survey them all around,

And too the one called host.

You’ll find him in alarming form,

Much needier than most.

 

As a flower which by self volition,

Bedecks itself in hues

He draws-in awestruck, hungry patrons

With a little, cunning rouge.

 

Perhaps all patriarchs and matrons

From which great history feeds

Are equally as much dependent

Due to vulnerabilities.

 

How should one view a parasite?

From the vantage of within.

You’re a host or you’re the other kind,

Which are the same thing to begin.
