Blood Meal

Post by audiofool » Mon Sep 07, 2015 11:09 pm

Little bloodsuckers
I don't quite care for you
You seem attached to me
For some reason

Taking advantage
Of my vulnerability
Now is an opportune time
To fill your insect bellies

I would draw
A potent metaphor
Bursting with social relevance
And political overtones

But you are
Just a little bloodsucker
On a muggy morning
Savoring a feast

The global mega-merchant
Looming behind
Seems a fitting haven
For these winged devils

The price of progress
Is a vacant lot
Boasting an army
Of little bloodsuckers.
