    Beware of Mind
    By Wolfwig


    Mind the mind
    with ravenous appetite,
    begging to tease from its poor, nescient neighbor
    a moment’s reflection or
    tasty treat;

    Leaping for
    show and chasing its long tail,
    it may roll over and play dead just to gain
    attention, then glimmer with
    pride or glee.

    Leave it be;
    do not feed or provoke it,
    lest you should be torn to bits in playful guile
    with your defenses at rest,
    unawares.
