Life is Sweet

November 18, 2019

 

If you see an ant go marching

In his regimented pack,

Brittle, beady body arching

With that leaf upon his back,

Let him be, don’t dare beleaguer

Him for what he didn’t do;

Life is sweet and even meager

Creatures know it to be true. 

 

If you see a bee go lugging

From the hive to bloom and back,

Whirling, whisking winglets tugging

All that pollen in his sac,

Let him be, don’t dare beleaguer

Him for what he didn’t do; 

Life is sweet and even meager

Creatures know it to be true.  

 

If you see a roach go zipping

Down the floor and up the rack,

Fuzzy feelers fiercely whipping,

Searching for a midnight snack,

Let him be, don’t dare beleaguer

Him for what he didn’t do;

Life is sweet and even meager

Creatures know it to be true.
