Word for Today: Symbol
Ebenezer Scrooge counted
his pennies, miserly in
manner of living. Even he
was capable of change. Today
I see weasels everywhere–sly,
and darting around principles,
facts, and decency. When weasels
in the wild are cornered, they spurt
a yellow, oily liquid that reeks.
They tend to stay with their own kind.
