Love Is An Anthill - Poem by Mark Heathcote

Love is an anthill
A million internalizations
Each ant has a confused understanding of another
They believe they can lift 20 times their own body weight
Sustain chain singularly each other together forever —
This they have us believing is their own free will and fate.
But sees here collectively a colony of 40,000 ants
Has only the same brain size and power as a human man
So I guess it takes a queen to rule a kingdom.
