Sturdy giants standing guard

Over rushing river, fertile plain;

Giants steadfast, tall and hard,

Rulers of a vast domain.

 

Every age has its pretender

To this imaginary throne;

But too soon each must surrender

To cosmic forces, known, unknown.

 

Recently a sound and fury

Has come upon the quiet land.

Ant-like beings hurry, scurry,

Shaping the Earth to their command.

 

Assuming nature bows to serve,

Telling giants what to do,

Acting with colossal nerve,

Stirring up a witches' brew.

 

Giants chuckle; this commotion

Will soon be fading memory.

Peace again will gird the ocean,

Some crumbling ruins a legacy.

 

When sound and fury has subsided

Sturdy giants still will reign,

Free again from beings misguided,

Rulers of a vast domain.

 


Alan Cook, Mystery and walking writer
