Under a rock

12 Apr

Under a rock
along a trail
that borders a creek
that snakes though a dale
that lies at the feet
of an old mountain range,
I discovered a real surprise:

A colony of creepy things,
like ants and worms,
beetles and bugs;
squirmy, slippery, silvery fish —
things that are plump and full of fat goo
that oozes in colors, and squirts
when they’re squished —
like a mall of a small
metropolitan town,
this diverse buggery
that I wouldn’t have found
had I stepped o’er that rock
along the trail
that borders a creek
that snakes through a dale
tht lies at the feet
of an old mountain range.
