Ants - Poem by Daniel Solan

You are all worker ants
and the tunnels you dig will be
remembered by no-one,
a fake destiny.

Happy happy ups and downs,
a cover for young eyes.
Events of nothingness
feed hungry lies.

My stomach is full
and i don't want desert...
maybe just a bite
i love the taste of dirt.

    The poem is actually based around observing the majority of the human population working for a goverment that has no good intentions for us. 'Loving the taste of dirt' line refers to not wanting to abide but having no choice. (Report)Reply
