"Antsy" by Hiram Larew

Worms I’m sure lose patience

With rocks with moles with each other

And weeds too must get antsy sometimes

Because of trowels

or other spouting seeds or frost

Even clouds

Even with all of their comings or goings

Probably get annoyed in their own way

With the far off horizon

So why should I be surprised at all that

Who wins or

who loves who

Or even how the world spins to and fro

Causes such unending uproars among

the living and the dead

Or among the good or bad

or squirmy
