Cicada Time ~ Gideon Roos

A Poem by Gideon T Roos
"

A poem in praise of the resiliance of the animal kingdom.

"

Early in the morning

as the sun begins

its slow climb out of bed

 

the beetles are already up

and showering in the 

morning dew

 

aunt Sara and uncle Bob

are already hanging up 

the morning washing

 

the spider and the

fly are already

playing the game of life

 

little Jimmy

and Naughty Jon

have already lost a ball

 

and the ant and

termite empires are

already hard hard at war

 

As the golden round

reaches the hight

of its reign

 

aunt Sara and uncle Bob

have passed out on the bed;

the majority of their clothes lie haphazardly in their stead

 

little Jimmy and Naughty Jon

are lying under a tree;

their skin dotted with the drops of water from their earlier swimming spree

 

but

 

the beetles are still

hard at work gathering

food for the night

 

the spider and the

fly have yet

to return to their stalls

 

and the ant and

termite empires

are still building up their walls
