HUMAN WORMS, by            
First Line: Flatterers are the worms who prey upon
Last Line: He's a mere husk, cleaned out, they gnaw another.
Subject(s): Flattery


FLATTERERS are the worms who prey upon
Men of rich substance. Into some innocent host
Insinuated, they sit down and eat;
And when, like corn-ears with no grain to show,
He's a mere husk, cleaned out, they gnaw another.
