A worm from a clot of dirt
is relentless, even dogged,
in pursuit of elemental living,

the champion of all things
organic, he tills his own soil,
aerates and fertilizes

gives back as much as he takes,
composting as he goes.  Work
has its own reward, survival.

His inner drummer sounds
a constant beat, and his life
does its own dirt dance.
