Fire Anthology

by Packrat Poet 3 years ago in nature poetry
Report Story

The scourge of the south

Anthracitic ants anticipate antipathy.

A true Antediluvian antagonist, their anthoid antrum a scourge.

Using an antiquated anthelmintic,

I attempt to attack their mound;

Their antennae ever attuned,

I swear I heard a faint battle cry Anthem,

Their sudden purge resembling an anthemion.

But this is not anthropophagy,

I anthropomorphize.

Their antics are merely an antevert.

Antibiosis in the form of a nasty sting;

Not unlike an Antiar dart.

And now I am in need of an antidote or antivenin:

An antalgic antiseptic or antibiotic

To neutralize this anticly growing antefix.

And not to make an anticlimactic mountain out of an anthill:

This. Is. War.
