I followed a trail of ants today,
down a tree trunk.
They waved and
cheered-saved my day
I guess I’d found some luck.
No longer will I wake up in tears,
for I have found real friends.
The ones that that travel far and near,
on just a few short legs.
One found my arm,
and wants to tag along.
It followed me on the school bus,
but I accidentally flicked him off.
He’s offended, hurt–I’m certain!
I must have broken the pact:
Never neglect new friends,
for they might not come back!
I wonder whether he’ll find his allies,
the ones I met today.
I hope he doesn’t tell
them that I flicked him far away!
