Social Immunity

"Empathy isn’t generous.”

Dangerously suspicious
Behaviors suggest
Parasitic infection
By spores of fungal notions

That threaten the colony.
Drag that heretic away,
Send Azazel a scapegoat,

Leave me in outer darkness
To wander off, climb a tree,
Shed the spores infecting me.

I would do the same for you,
Except what’s infected me
Precludes punishing a truth.
