Travels With Charlie: “And There in the Forest, A Battle Raged”
“And so it was I happened to see
An heroic moment… witnessed only by me…
When thousands of insects, termites I think
Awoke with a start, and with a synchronous wink
Departed the ground where they’d been crawling around
And rose like an air squadron into the sky.”
