Another Skinny poem.  Something about this form attracts me.

Invasive species is a useful biological concept. My poem is related but not just ‘about’ it.

An invasive species is a non-native species … whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic harm, environmental harm, or harm to human health. The term “invasive” is used for the most aggressive species. These species grow and reproduce rapidly, causing major disturbance to the areas in which they are present.

    1. Thanks for dropping by and letting me know about your launch post. I came across the Skinny form on WordPress at the link below the poem. It looks simple but holds much possibility… so I try it out now and then.
