fungus ain’t a critter take no for an answer.
fungus ain’t gonna get up and go
just because you say go.

black mold on the rug, black mold in the carpet pile,
white mold growing on the underside of the bed,
boudoir smelling of the mushroom patch.

bleach, ammonia, soap—so what?
fungus the critter own the original deed,
ink indelible, parchment unburnable.

burn down the house? and all the goods inside?
fungus be a spore, float away on the smoke,
go live someplace else.
be waitin there when you arrive.
