Parasites. They establish insincere acquaintance… This Friday, read these marvelous verses by the South African author Yolanda Beukes.
Parasites by Yolanda Beukes
You salute the parasite who infuse perplexity
and mystification in this time of required consideration.
Insert in your mentality egotistical worship,
bogus images of nuptials and affiliation.
You attract the parasite who establish insincere
acquaintance, conviction and poise.
Persuading your faithful spirit to
twist to paths identical to bloodsuckers.
You credit the parasite who introduce
desire, interaction and treachery.
Masquerading its intention to fallaciously
escort your intelligence to betrayal.
You worship the parasite who essentially deceive
and swindle the confidence of wits, stiff and psyche.
Take caution to your sanctified parasite for vermin
approach and exit leaving a astringent ambiance.
