SUGAR AND FIRE ANTS

We reached the top of a steep hill
Up to a rickety old house
And asked to see the Blind Seer
The only one who can help us now

She said, “open your hand, love.
You must take it all.”
One dose of sugar and fire ants
To set the wrongs right

Just a hand full
Of sugar and fire ants
Makes the medicine go down

I did as she said
I put my hand to my mouth
Swallowed all, washed it down with some moonshine
As strong as sunshine

Oh, it’s like I’m drinking fire
And everything went numb
Save for one burning question
How long does it take to work?

Just a hand full
Of sugar and fire ants
Makes the medicine go down

I hope this works
