A little way of tiny life,
insects which are not easy to sight.
Follow me, I'll follow you.
Easy to spot in daylight
Sticking together without glue,
 sneaking in cracks at night.
Walking around with no clue!
Stepping on them left to right.
To their queen they are true.
They don't seem to be very bright.
Walking in a straight line is all they do.
Everything to them is a meal,
even the meat on me or you.
Ants on a hill,
I stand here by Chance.
Ants on a hill,
I can't stand still.
Ants on a hill,
Making me dance,
Ants on a hill,
Their mean bite is real.
Ants on a hill, 
My legs I scratch.
Someone give me some gasoline and a match.
Ants on a hill,
Who I will burn and smash!

    This is a pleasant and entertaining poem, Skat! Quite an unusual subject. I love the mental image of you doing the 'ant dance'. Hugs // paul

    lol.ouch, especially those 'big' red ants that run around in the deserts.a red ant that size could probably kill you even if a little on your had to help a friend from this once, small ants were all over her back>.< but this is funny.haha, im wondering, is your son "boy Baby" or "baby Boy" which ever once he wants to be called? is that him, if so, thats cool!you should convince royal to write more too, as a young writer, it really does make the mind grow& it's okey,i am

    Boy can I relate to this poem. My husband and I bought a house last July. We woke up with fire ants all over the place. I think I was the main course. This poem is funny but true. I enjoyed the read. Thanks for your kind comments on my limerick! Susan

    Poor ants! LOL Poor legs. Why couldn't you just go ask them politely to move their hill out of your way! LOL Suggest another place and see what they say...or do. Oh, be sure to give them an ultimatum if the don't...Then, and only then, go for the gas! LOL Smiles. I had fun with your poem this am...I'm off to try a limerick. SMILES, Dane Ann
