Tarons experience

There once was a daphnia called Taron,
who was said to hold the rank of a baron.
Taron was a water flea,
as small as could be.
He lived in a bag full of water,
with his wife and his son and his daughter.
Their friends and family lived with them too,
too many to know who was who.
One day a giant came along,
a picked up his home for the giant was strong.
Their home rattled and shook,
Was this some terrible nightmare in a book?
Finally his home stops shaking,
and everyone stops quaking.
But whats this?
A new threat is here to big to miss.
A giant tube pushes through their roof,
Is this their fate? Some dangerous proof?
Suddenly he finds himself stuck,
he's stuck in the tube- what rotten luck.
He finds himself carried away,
and none of his friends can save the day.
But suddenly hes out,
What is this all about?
Hes on some kind of mat,
transparent and flat.
A light is above him,
he feels so helpless and dim.
Giants stand around,
making such a loud sound.
Hes back in the tube, back in his home,
he feels safe now hes back home.
What went off he'll never know,
but he hopes he'll never again have to go.
