Of Ants and Men

written by: P.C. Darkcliff



The red ants lived happily on their anthill—until the white ants came and massacred them.
The white ants brought in black ants to slave for them, and although they later freed them, they’ve kept them on the margins. They also invaded other anthills to prevent imaginary attacks.
Then a black ant took over and eased the tensions and discrimination. Most white ants hated it so much they asked a big orange ant to make the anthill great again.
And he did…
I live far away from that strange anthill. But sometimes I feel bad about being a white ant.
