The little ant Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Azira Aziz, Malaysia Feb 5, 2008
Human Rights , Peace & Conflict   Poetry


The little ant works and toils
To get his company
By his little hands and little feet
Endlessly he finds food
The Queen and company
He asks no questions of
And bothered not his why's
For it is to Queen and company
Does his life owe of

One day as he returned
To tithe communal feed
He found out to his dismay
Some got more than many
And as these ants sit and sleep
Unlike the little ant
Who spends their days with the Queen
And their nights with rest
Something arose in the little ant
In his little breast

The little ant told his peers
Who also feel the same
And yet, most care not
As long as life remains
So thus the little ant
Buries his will deep
For nothing may be done
When most ants cry defeat

There are no definitive truths, there are no definitive facts, all we have are mere opinions, of which significance is derived from consensus.

The poem seems very interesting.May I request Azira Aziz to write give the background and a little explanation of the poem so that its meaning may be understood easily. I appreciate Azira for her efforts. Cheers!
