Catch A Cold - Poem by shimon weinroth

As hosts
We are so self centered
Even when parasites or viruses alight
Upon our being, we take the credit

Biological visitors
Invaders
Who take up abode
Feeding off our good nature

Till we are compelled to expel,
We retaliate
In due process of anti-bioics
Shirk them off

Then to those around us
Who
Can then claim
They caught a cold
