Formicid Form: The Ant

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
So what?
Would you be calm and placid
If you were full of formic acid?


Verse Correspondant Natalia Piland writes: “Probably not.”
