Dear Ant – National Poetry Day Message Poem by me!

Dear Ant

.

Ant
in your tiny, shiny coat
maybe as one –
insignific-ant

.

but gleaming, teeming,
nests per acre
you weigh more
than all
attend-ant

.

more than the herds
of wildebeest
zebra, lion, cheetah,
hippo, rhino –
antelope, eleph-ant

.

toiling,
turning soil,
seed distributing,
earth fertilising,
diversifying,
decomposing,
providing food
to each and every
inhabit-ant

.

which is definitely not
insignific-ant
ant

.
