The friendly Timmy Termite
has never been cool
in the eyes of the neighbors
or the children in school.

When they hear that name, ‘Termite,’
they wrinkle their noses,
when they see him they wilt
like ten year old roses.

Oh how sad it is
his mere hunger for wood
makes the entire world
judge someone no good.

The whole world but one:
a fish called Anchovy
who knows what its like
to never feel cozy

in the company of people
who don’t say it but think,
“Did he say his name is ‘Anchovy’?
Now I know what stinks!”

That’s why they each kinda’ get it,
This tiny fish and smaller bug,
Why the other is on
An endless quest for love.
