Spreading through the soil

towards their destination

they wait for that moment.

Now is that time!

To engage in selfless toil.

Creeping in one by one

into the monumental structure

it is now their dinner!

Nobody saw them get in

No one had watched their work booming

Nobody had any idea of their plans.

Web of disease engulfing body and mind

Guardians turning fickle leaving a culture eroded.

Wrongs not undone but stay to be the new rights.

Alarms not raised nor questions asked

as the edifice transforms into an anthill.

Can the aching heart anymore expect a revival?

Termites swarm on the remains

of pillars that had long held high

the wonders of wisdom and passion

once the world’s treasure chest

now stolen by trustees of era next.
