I was going to write you
an ode to a nemotode;
but, I don’t actually know
that much about you.
could you please kindly
take a minute or two
to elucidate my lack of knowledge
as I never studied you at college
(or anything else, as I didn’t go there)
I shoulda coulda – maybe woulda – tried harder
if I knew
that I wouldn’t know about you.
so, I sit here and squirm
with my lack of knowledge –
are you some sort of worm?
