A Downward Slant - Poem by Clay Kohut

You're an ant.

You're a soldier,
You're a worker,
You're a liar.
Building nests and always reaching ever higher
but you're still barely anything.

A downward slant.

When we started,
When we guarded,
When we parted,
So sure of ourselves; we never even started
to patch up anything.
