As you calmly walk along— neither

Tooting  french horn nor banging gong;

Simply humming a cheery

Unhearable ant song–

Mighty finger from

The sky squashes

You until

You plum

      Thank you! This is definitely one of my stranger poems–not sure where it came from exactly, though I certainly hate ants (they always get into my house). I like to picture the “finger from the sky” appearing through those clouds 🙂

      Wonderful! I’m so thankful for poets who introduce me to new forms. I currently have a list of five or six that I am determined to try. So glad I could introduce this form to you and look forward to reading your nonet. Thanks 🙂
