Ichthyopthirius Multifiliis

 protected in turreted cystic castles,
an unwelcome burrow between scales-
it cuts beneath skin
feeding on tender tissue.
nestled in its bristly cocoon, 
offspring shoots to the floor-

splintering into hundreds of frenzied parasites

ready to devour the group.

the phenomenon is not organic,
not bred in the habitat.
singular celled, smallest speck of filth,

it is ick.
