Wordle #189 – Helminth the Parasitic Worm


This week’s words: Malice Gangly Find Misery Hardhearted Lens Imperative Orbit Inchoate (adj.)) Not yet fully developed, rudimentary, lacking order Helminth (n.)) a worm especially a parasitic worm Mask Glide

Helminth the parasitic worm looked about. It was such a nice looking day, and he felt the malice of his hardhearted kind rising in his slimy throat.

All he needed was to find a gangly, inchoate youth, and there were plenty of them about. He decided to hide under the park seat and wait his chance to impart his brand of misery.

As it was Tuesday, there were many youths of the gangly variety orbiting the park in small groups devising ways to spend their well-earned dole handouts.

It was imperative for Helminth the parasitic worm to give the illusion of harmlessness, to hide behind the mask of respectability.

When the moment was right, he would glide over and secrete himself into the unsuspecting gangly youth and through the only lens on his body head for the succulent and tasty parts of the gangly youths stomach.

Helminth the parasitic worm was good at his trade, if you could call it that and hated when discovered the invasion of the stomach by armour-clad warriors determined to drive him out.

He was always grateful that every gangly youth he invaded had a ready-made escape route. So with malice afore thought he moved on the gangly youth now seated on the park bench.
