Here's a little poem by me, first appeared at The Wonder Book of Poetry -

Ants and Us
Andrew Burke

Today again
in this new town
a million or two tiny ants
keep formation going about
their business following
their instincts and i liken
them again to us as
i have since i was knee-high
to a grasshopper we too
follow our instincts to eat
to reproduce to follow
our leaders with our two feet
handicapped as we are
by human intelligence
beclouding our instincts with
unsettling clouds of thought.
