#366days366posts – Day 31 – Ants in a bottle of oil

Oh there they are, the ants!
The forager on the oil bottle;
And a clear trail left behind,
For the rest to follow.
Allured to the oil they seem;
And on it they swarm en masse
Curling up and sliding down,
Plunging into the oil and out.
Some get stuck and die;
Others get through unscathed,
And back to the ant colony.
Teaching a lesson to us perhaps?
Entangled in the oil called life;
To squirm out and live another day!

I'm an avid reader and writer. Reading gets me a feeling of understanding the world through different perspectives and writing helps me outline my thoughts from the cobwebs that the mind has trapped it in!
