I love nature, the world is so fine
everything’s in its proper place,
even me here in mine.
But some days I consider
if creepy crawlies would be missed.
Spiders kill flies which is good
and leeches cleanse the blood,
but do tapeworms need to exist?
Bees and worms are of great use
pollenating flowers and making honey
while the worms break down refuse
to help us survive and make money.
A tick is something I cannot justify
they spread disease to all who pass.
I look at today’s political farce
A similarity occurs I need to ratify.
The tick is too small to really compare
with the revulsion I feel for this bugbear.
But tapeworms are ugly parasites
they take the food that’s yours by rights.
Slimy, foul and very unpleasant
should I just say the non-president.
Hold him supreme?
What a stupid dream!
The office he’s not worthy of
as he destroys all you love.
He makes me squirm
More than the tapeworm.
