The poem(s) are below...



Smallest of ants could be called a hexaped.

Ants by the millions spew from a subterranean bed.

Cast(s) of thousands work relentlessly to be fed.

Long hours of constant foraging or many go dead.

Shadows of their incessant hunger we face with dread!

For the "Smallest Ants Cast Long Shadows," contest.
