Parasite is a rather strong – if incredibly accurate – word

If I had been thinking 
straight out of my mother's womb
I would have dedicated myself
to the art of judging others
and would have started myself
an award company
so I would never have to achieve
and only tell others that they
had struck some sort of


and were better than everyone else
who's arbitrary


had not quite been crossed
or perhaps just not crossed
hard enough

and I would make my way
in this world not by standing
on the shoulders of giants,
but by tricking giants in to thinking
that most of them just
aren't big enough
