The bugs argue back and forth
As the wind-blown grass dances
Around them, amidst the mocking trees
Water canters to the battlefield,
Meeting the insects' war cry

Driftwood distracts the current's path
Embracing it in a pool of algae
Obnoxious students drown the bugs
Heckling and cackling

The bugs retreat for another day
When the students stay inside,
Paint the pages of their notebooks
And argue back and forth
As the air conditioning blows the papers
Across the room
