Red Ant Power - Poem by Nikhil Parekh

Wrinkled folds of elephant skin were painted golden
yellow,
ivory tusks were encircled with ornate black,
sturdy teak wood seat was strapped to its body,
large fringe of hair grew on slender tail,
the elongated trunk had several corrugations,
scalp was abraded by uprooting tall tree structures,
the pachyderm marched through
the wilderness,
crushing an armoury of shrub, dismantling bird house
with caressing trunk,
bellowed exuberantly as the sky turned crimson,
added leaps to its stride with torrential rain,
carried passengers at towering heights from the
ground,
bathed in gushing currents of the mountain river,
splashing rockets of solvent on the surrounding
flamingo's,
drenching itself with icy spray of spring water.

there was a fleet of ants residing in cocoons of soil,
bustling with feverish activity,
transporting milligram amounts of food grain,
for relishing meals all throughout the day.
the African beast trampled their den,
disrupting the harmony of their united network,
killing them in colossal numbers, sped haughtily for a
good nights sleep.
the ants wanted to teach him a lesson,
caught up with him, clung to his tail, foot,
occupied vantage points on his body,
finally inserting their venom stings on the hard
skinned mammal,
causing him to collapse in a heap, displaying the
supreme might of RED ANT
POWER.
