The Parasite

A parasite is an organism, a parasite is an animal, a parasite is a mystery, a parasite is a metaphor for the animal inside us. The parasite can find happiness only at the expense of someone else. The parasite changes and adapts only to be loved, so let's face it, we might all have one in ourselves.
