The Little Back Ant

Straddling the rugged uneven red earth
The little black ant scuttles from spec to spec
Urgent urgently searching for a certain thing
Of its interest and great worth

What moves the miserable creature with such zest I ponder
A boy's careless foot and its game is all over
Crushed and mingled with grime and mud
Do these ugly things speak to us I wonder.
