Army_ants - Geoff Gallice

How frantic ants seem

To towering men above

Made of the same parts

Yet able to love

 

How frantic we must seem

To timeless space above

Made of the same parts

But impartial to love

 

A lavish home crafted by one

Hollow rooms amongst silent halls

An endless space for a minute some

All for this, a special kind?

 

Made of star-stuff, a star-stuff once said

Hardwood hands and nervous doors

A kind carpenter once passed

But left just like the rest

We’re quick to forget

Demolition made this place
