AN ANT’S MARCH

109 steps
to the cube and back
not one single step
off the charted track.
59 steps
to the corner in the dark
sharp right turn
and stay on the mark.
This is the very stage
to be cautious and quick
in case there is a need
to beat a hasty retreat.
Over the green sea,
around the monster’s foot
50 more steps
to the sweet sugary loot.
The final giddy steps
to sweet ambrosial nectar
then 109 again
to safety and shelter.
