Termites - the Better Side


The termites really bug a lot
Of humans as wood eaters would.
But humans find termites have got
A lot of poop scoop that is good.
Digested wood in termite gut
Does turn to hydrogen in part,
And not a burning fuel - tut-tut,
Could be a power source quite smart.
A termite gut is also where
A cure for cancer may be found,
Studying the core protein there -
Why cellular bad might abound.

Termites could be humans' best friends,
Bearing gifts from termites' back ends.
