The Canny Interloper


The Canny Interloper


Arrived hiding in the skirts of pleasure

Biding time, exploring unseen

Fooling and confusing, now you see me now you don’t

Focus on my siblings they show up

Leave me be I just corrupt


It lingers in my blood the canny interloper

Ignoring all entreaties to disappear

A permanent liver in a new home

Hiding till all’s clear

Refusing interference it slides back into place

So slowly working to lay its host to waste.
