The Deluge

The rain reminds us
that we are as powerless
as the drowning ant

It is hard to reign
when your crown is swept away
in the real queens' roars.

The Pawn

I play my small role
a blank face in the millions
too matter-of-fact

Seek the dangerous
bold firefly and be pinned
by biting monsters

there's no knight for you
you wouldn't recognize him
at all anyway.
