Ants and humans

The Indian ant
Doesn’t dream the American dream.
It collects sugar and seeds, through the day
To take to its colony –
It gets its rightful due
At the end of the day.
 
Men too
Do not dream of a life on Andromeda.
There is little that is different
In the two social orders,
Except, maybe that man
Can be a little indisciplined at times.
 
Some men eat ants
And some ants eat men-
Though all this happens
In remote forests.
Civilized men and ants
Live in cozy apartments, peacefully.
 
The observer in Andromeda wonders
How do the two species avoid treading
On each others’ foot, in such a small space?
Which one rules the blue planet?
And which one would survive
The next asteroid strike?
