Sammi’s Weekender #121 (thwart)

Of Gems or Germs

They number in trillions.
Too many to census tally,
on insides and outsides of every
human body, we each have
our own personal repertoire
of microbes keeping us alive.

In typical foolish human fashion
we’ve tried to kill them
with discovered miraculous medications,
intending genocide to thwart some few
deadly troublemakers by misusing
mass murder techniques, all
to our own peril and demise.


Look both ways for the connections of all life,
the great and the small.
Mind the gaps of gods and science and don’t be fooled by prophets or profits.

  1. Excellent, Bill… you say what I feel. We can’t kill them all, nor should we. How the hell are we supposed to build any antibodies if we don’t expose ourselves to them?
