Newborn Ideas

The world must know!
newborn ideas cry out,
still full of blood,
voices clear and loud.

Freshly washed and humming
they are so beautiful !
How could they know
that they are already dying.

Legions of burying bugs,
with a toast to a long life,
started the funeral banquet,
to be consumed alive.
