An Insect’s Dream

Lying on the ground

a simple insect on its back

hallucinating before death

and becoming a bird’s snack

The enemy came

brutal and thriving

shooting fiery arrows

taking the living

With drive and determination

insect made a bold move

fiercely aiming for the eyes

sight to be removed

Enemy falls

screaming in pain

insect is victorious

now time for the gain

Covered in armor

leaping toward some meat

a handsome reward for victory

a feast to eat

All of the sudden

enemy reappears

with renewed strength

death is near

It is finished

as the spirit begins to rise

now living in limbo

awaiting a new disguise

The veil opens

living again

a new battle emerges

maybe this time the insect wins
