Why Does A Fire Ant Bite?

Why Does A Fire Ant Bite?

A Poem by K. A. Munn

Screeching in the air,
Like music straining on the brink of pain,
Reminding the listener of the heartbeat of a trapped rabbit,
Frightened, Pulsating, Searing through the mind and the heart.
The bulldozers force the ground to tremble.
Conquering the very earth with it's sheer intimidation.

A solitude ant stands in the field,
Horrified, confused in it's simple mind,
Frozen to the spot, 
Waiting for instruction.

The soft grounds to which the ant calls home,
Ripped to shreds and thrown aside,
All it's known, and all it knew,
Buried alive under cement,
Drowning forever,
Solidified and crushed.

A solitude ant stands in the field,
Solemn, confused in it's simple mind,
Frozen to the spot,
Trying to comprehend the loss.

The ant hill in which it called refuge in,
Is poisoned,
Is stomped upon,
Is gassed or filled or drowned.
Then once again, filled with cement,
Extinguishing every single ant--
But one.

A solitude ant stands in the field,
Furious, confused in it's simple mind,
Frozen to the spot,
Unsure what just happened,
But sure in it's solution--
Revenge.

Be careful to avoid separating subjects and predicates into different sentences. Apart from that, I like it.
