More than along for the ride

Our bodies abound
in out and on
with one point three
microbe critters
for every one of our cells.

That race is close
and every time
we go
number two
we break ahead
until our friends catch up.

Gross, disgusting and nasty
they may be
to certain sensibility
but so necessary
as we came to be
with them and of a prokaryotic sea.

We need them
for our health
and nutrition

and must be wary
of the use of any
antibiotic anything
as it kills
lots of us
even some of us protecting
us from disease.
