The Witness MAG
I admire the white doves courting,
as the hummingbirds sing
a sweet chorus of Ave Maria.
Their chirps of joy leap through the air.
[Hush, child. Do not speak.]
The spider and the fly droop below,
where Hunger swallows Fear
into the depths of a bitter, bottomless abyss
The tangling webs, inescapable.
[Cover your ears, child. Do not listen.]
Inching by underneath are the snails
who entwine for a brief moment before departing.
They leave a trail of slime, the only evidence
of the temporary encounter.
[Close your eyes, child. Do not see.]
See, nothing can go wrong for me;
My altruism serves as a shield of ignorance.
I'm a soldier for my queen, no other intent
But it doesn't keep an ant from lifting its head to witness.
[Guard your heart, child. Do not love.]
