Might Termites

wood dust,
termites with their fine teeth make,
make drop

like sand in an hour glass
letting you know
however big your house,
its days, as well as yours,
are numbered

gums of termites, numb from chewing
cows, sheep, goats, antelopes chew cuds

termites chewing away, my house, uninsured

mine I say, mine they say
on and on goes our tug-of-war

Welcome, brother from Uganda, last king of Scotland or is such a label insulting? We must chat about this film.

I need more human hands on my side of the rope, against these insects.
