Concentrate Like a Bug

[A]
Born with work in mind and in the wings
right to move and left to store for next year
as practical as a concentrating caterpillar.

[B]
Bees buzz all day long
keeping the hive strong
if one dies it
knows it has been faithful
best to be at rest
once all your use is gone.

[A]
Meant to be busy like pioneers
no one to rely on but your imagination
food will not grow itself without active meditation.

[B]
Three is more than one
four generations
later now we’ve
stepped into the future
gazing at forever
as if we were there.

[C]
Like the tiny ant
I can’t stop until I
walk as far as I wish I could fly
to bring back wisdom.

Like the grub I am
all I know makes me go
I can see as clearly as the way ahead
what all grubs know.
