"Earthworm and Crow"
(I thought picking 2 animals was better suited for the purpose of my poetry... to bring out their traits in a binary sort of way!)
The wriggly little thing did quick
To build up clouds of soft soil
The moment a crow drew near him
In cawing expectation for food.
The excavation by the sharp beak
Drilled away in Parnassian hits yet
Nothing was smarter or simpler
As the worm dug inside the earth
Threading away at the mucus moistness...
Meanwhile, the crow perched unafraid
A hatha yogi meditating as long as needed!
