B Positive

(Published by Five Fleas Itchy Poetry)

The problem, fleas, site titular,

is where there’s five; may well be more.

It’s boring when obsession grips,

the more so for their sawing tricks.

If only they were cochineal,

excuse to pulverise for blood;

though mine transfused, if found and drained,

icing on cake, ‘B positive’.
