THE TINY LABOURERS by Amrita G.

ants

They are tiny labourers

Working for themselves.

Living as their neighbours,

We don’t do much for ourselves.

Hungrily I ate, dropping a piece of wafer

Greedily they came; united they took.

This forced me to give them a look.

Poor ants! Struggling to take it!

“I will help you dear ones”, I said

I took the piece from them,

Depressed they went empty handed…

Seeing this with wonder,

I uttered, “Fools! I don’t need any wage!”
