Poor Weary’s Hovel

Throughout no statement of past things
Will interfere with what you see
Of parasitic strategy.

In hero stories, the monster
In station is more predator,
An aristocratic dragon,

Which may be why the audience,
Status-obsessed little monkeys,
Often sort of love the monster.

Actual parasites are small,
Little ticks, littler diseases
Infesting the ticks infesting

The little monkeys scratching at
Itches in poor weary hovels,
Anchorites nearly parasites

Themselves. It’s a fine line to know
Who is scrounging off of whose hide,
Imagining strength on their side.
