"Those That Live As Asses" (by Joe DiMino)

Those that live as asses
Are nearest to fertilizer:

Bad germs are not evil—

Just opportunists, like cats;
Will take what is available
In the way of prey—

But unlike cats
Preferring healthy meals,
Germs feed on the ill
Of body and spirit—

We are what we ingest:
What we see,
What we hear,
What we think
Becomes us….
