Prickly

everybody wants me

everybody wants me

Some people suffer from illusions of being so desirable, in the midst of barren landscapes, that they surround themselves with endless arrays of nasty defenses.
Like the prickly pear cactus, they end up
being consumed by packrats and skunk pigs, who couldn’t care less about such fearful projections.

Why not emulate the apple tree, instead,
and invite people to visit and feast on the gladly offered fruit?
