Ode to a Nemotode


Not a nemotode

I was going to write you

(yes, 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?
