Lightning and thunder outsidepredicts another intense downpour;
ants, flying and crawling all over my room.
They seemed to boil out of a windowsill.
Their swarm storm ignited my own storm-fury,so I bought some heavy-duty insecticide;
soon toxic peretherin soaked the room,
a short time later, ant bodies littered the floor.
The rain outside finally subsided,and the ant storm inside was abated
by a fine mist of lethal droplets.
All in all, quite a day for soaked
lawns and carpets both.
At least the dead ants could be vacuumed up,not so the swollen ponds and rivers.
We need to build a pipeline to the desertto dispose of all this excess water.
Better yet, send all of the bugs down there too.
