In the stealth of night
they march. Plunder and ruin.
Oh no! Zampopos!

(zampopos: This is my spelling of the leaf-cutting ants that harvest leaves at night to take back to their nests and on which to grow their food and capable of stripping a plant or bush of all it’s leaves in one night. Zampar in Spanish means to "eat greedily.")
