Parasite

grasp grasp clutch; microscopic hands

all fitted with claws by the millions,

and a malignancy only discovered

in matters and things smaller than

a nanometer

*

a malintention of no objective.

too tiny for a goal of function; sans purpose but

eat eat survive survive and

munch munch the life juice out.

a process mechania, only seen

in ebola and computer viruses.

*

it is not miserable it is not happy

it does not get off on its work.

it does not get off.

*

alien and cold,

it is not cruel it is not evil

but simply is in its existence

*

a reasonably unnecessary sore

an evolutionary fluke

the zit on the backside of mommy Nature.

all those tiny nails

imperceptibly scratching away

at the organic blood-brain barrier.

*

it is worse than Heroin.

Heroin topples the barrier like

The Mongolian Army.

this is a trojan horse

(if the trojan horse

was inconceivably

small with no

scheming

greeks

in-

side)

*

just a hollow

*

structure which

*

*

one cannot blame

*

*

*

for anything.

*

you cannot ascribe it the role

of the devil, or the role of

the bloodthirsty beast.

you cannot call it a terrorist

and declare war.

it sits inactive and innocent

of its own guilt and

your impending demise

with no sci-fi baritone

proclaiming

"Resistance is Futile."
