The Ant In Man - Poem by Elmer Romulo Valdez

Reduce and shrink,
Fit into your hole;
Hold the rising system,
Tie it down to the roots.

Minimize the energy,
Stop the power at 8 p.m.;
Cool the bulbs and lamps,
Look into the darkness.

Lie down, shut your eyes,
Think about your dreams;
Apply cost-saving systems,
Conserve, store, and wait.
