The Daily Ant maintains “Formicid Form”, a Sunday ant poetry series. When possible, our Verse Correspondant, Natalia Piland, provides a short commentary at the end of each poem. Enjoy!
The Ant (1902-1971)
By Ogden Nash
The ant has made herself illustrious
By constant industry industrious
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?
Verse Correspondant Natalia Piland writes: “Probably not.”
