Army Ants

One whisper...

The forest floor trembles

A path of literal 
mayhem

Untethered to mankind

Strangely eschewing
Frogs, snakes and lizards

"Long Live The Queen"
Their 
Only 
Anthem!

Eternity 
Their
Reward

I
Fall
In

    Some tasty brain-food here!.. I got a chance to hear you on Drake's, you ended the show in grand poetic fashion. You wet my pupils... 1 day she asked, 17 years later its become. As a father, I feel that!
