Ants push their way out
Reach for the sunlight
Vying to be the first
To dig their way out of the tomb.
Who could ever think that such a small thing
So dainty and delicate (when in millions)
Could be so powerful as to kill...
Lives, romances, communications
All depending on a small shovel
To tunnel out of the prison
And to grasp freedom once more
Or else be smothered: dying in the attempt
One small path leading to another,
A vein in the road the only way to civilization
Man-made as everything else is
You keep on shoveling
Like everyone else
For everyone else.
