Ants

Ants

(to the tune of "Oh My Darling")

It's an insect not a spider
it has 6 legs instead of 8
3 on this side 3 on that side
and it's crawling on your plate.


The Army Ants

Left
                    Right
Left
                    Right
We're army ants.
We swarm.
                    We fight.
We have no home.
We roam.
We race.
You're lucky if
We miss your place.

Douglas Florian


1 ant, 2 ants , 3 ants 4
our picnic is their grocery store
5 ants 6 ants 7 ants 8
they are crawling on my plate
8 ants 7 ants
stomp around
6 ants 5 ants
on the grouns
4 ants 3 ants
on the run
2 ants 1 ant
no more fun.
