top o' the food chain to you

   you have to smile 

   to transform the march 

   into a parade 

   you have to laugh 

   to let the parade 

   become a dance 

   here at the approximate 

   top of the food chain 

   beset by insects 

   insulted by fungus 

   laid low by microbes and pollens 

   easy does it 

   easy does it
