Same Old Song and Dance

Bloody, bloody 
stripped down to the rust

Broken bones 
of marrow 
in a liquid puddle glaze

and the bugs come crawling 
for the acid dehydration 
spiked with honey sugar crave

and the ants go marching 
off to brutal conflict 
with a devil on their shoulder spouting lies

Fire, fire 
burning as a laser beam

Fallout failure 
melting down a house of cards

and the laughs come cackling 
for the throne collapsing 
down to empire rubble strewn

and the feet start dancing 
to evolution’s orchestra of light 
searing the truth into dark eyes
 Eciton hamatum [army ants] -- Hashime Murayama
