 “Always remember that birds eat ants;

but in the end, ending up as ants’ menu list”,

she always told him.

 

Regarding the statement as a concoction of words,

he went on doing what he loved doing; consuming time

in a Gypsy tent, searching for the elixir of immortality.

 

In the end, he died of old age without a solution

to his ageing, which he regarded  as a natural abnormality;

time finally consumed him.
