Prayer Of The Ant

Thank you God for giving me 6 legs That’s more than ample and plenty I guess To get around and praise You for Your glory Thank you for the 6 very sticky feet I get to walk on walls and ceilings But don’t really understand what for (Most food is on the floor.) And thank You for giving me a place to live Even though it is only a small hole on Earth And sometimes like my mind it gets a little dirty Protect me from the giants with ugly feet Who want to step on me because I’m tiny And because they like high fashion shoes I understand some styles are very expensive And really hurt when they stomp on you Squish you or is it squash? I can’t remember When the skinny heel comes down on my forever Please lead me to the picnic promised land of plenty Flowing with milk and honey without the milk Because we are not cows and are allergic to it Keep my sensors clean and pure for Your greater good For Thee and Thy and Thou and Thine However you pronounce them, it all sounds fine Protect me from and evil signal senders Don’t allow me to become a TV antennae either Because my feelers don't feel like it That would be offensive and less divine Protect me from my enemies one and all Mostly tall Don’t let the 2 footed giants step on me Especially those in Prada Amen

Hi Jan, Thanks! I appreciate your comments. On the subject of comments, I read two of your bawdy limericks. They were very funny, very clever. I neglected to say something on your site. Sorry about that. I will correct that situation. Earl
