The bug amid the experiment   am I
as snug as a bug in a rug   (the saying goes)
what need to breathe   a nigh-predestined sigh?
like any surrendering bug   I twirl my toes
& think things!   each conjecture (might I suppose?)
marks a pawn's stroll   on a chessboard few descry
planets swirl   a hidden stream (like clockwork) flows
the bug amid the experiment   am I
