Go To The Anthill Poem by Hezekiah Tiamiyu

Go To The Anthill

Rating: 5.0

O ye man
Of little understanding!
Engulfed by pleasures,
You have become blind
To this funny tragedous life.
You have lost the race
And swallowed in the track.

Listen! Go forth
To the anthill,
See how life
Has no meaning,
How the wealthy ants
Build huts and live in mansions.

Go forth to the ants
And learn how oneness
Gets us going longer.
Go forth to the ants
Go and learn
O ye man of thin knowledge.

When you match to death an ant
He leaves unclothed,
Taking nothing.
Go to the mighty ants
Learn that we die the same way
Also taking nothing.

Great wisdom in this poem, ants are amazing they are united and work and help one another!

I have also watched their lives closely and have been inspired by them! Ants are amazing and as you have rightly put it they build mansions and live in them, all because of collective work! Enjoyed much! ! If you don't mind read my poem Ants and the Lessons They Teach
