Day 19. The challenge is to write a humorous rant.

I want to have a rant
about ants
there are far too many ants
carrying heaps of sand
taking over lands
they think they own the place
they are such a disgrace
tickling me at night
giving me a fright
they are all around the house
worse when there’s a drought
this is a little rant
about ants
crowding over plants
a long trail of ants
from the bathroom
up the walls
walking down the halls
they don’t seem to care
loitering everywhere
but I don’t kill ants
I give them a chance
just a little sprinkle of cinnamon
sends them away
they don’t like the taste
hatching their plans
to take over the world
they don’t seem concerned
about the virus
or this crisis
these ants
they’re making me prance
I’m so over ants

I’d rather have a butterfly
floating through the house
or somewhere thereabouts…


I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
