Trapped in a Puddle by Amin Kassam

how long will you fight

little ant

before you are crushed?

surviving rocks and

oppressive jungle

you felt invincible

strode on the sands

of the great lake

mocking the hissing waves,

yet you cling to a stone

in its chuckling belly

while they reach increasingly

for your soul-

not even the printed page

floating so invitingly

can save you from wrath.
