Siege

Snuffling in the undergrowth
carpeted tail wiping clean
all past mistakes
Long tongue probing for a meal
made of an army
living inside a muddy fortress
the soldiers sting
with sword sharp mandibles
tongue snaps like a whip
breaking army ranks
causing confusion
each soldier is plucked
as a cherry from a tree
but their fortress is left standing
for the next time the anteater come calling.
