Sadly today it's every man for himself.
Even animals body swerve humans now.
Just the work rate of ants is impressive.

Humans maybe stupid, but if they just help each other - though you may have a bunch of stupids - they would achieve a goal that's beneficial for all! Learn it from the ants.

Very true Rene.
Thank you for reviewing my writing.
Certainly, one has to appreciate their tenacity towards teamwork and survival. That said, you really, really wouldn't want them taking up residence in your yard. (Their sting is BAD)

oh my goodness...they show that and a whole lot more ... their numbers and groupings and focus are marvelous ..(i googled them because of your poem ;) and they wax and wane with the weather and sex activity ;) i also found it fascinating that they have "no ant" zones surrounding their "territory" ... women are the workers surrounding the queen ...;) great title .. its as important as your poem ... works so well together ...

ps there is a lack of working together these days ... we could all use some respectful co-operation eh!?
