What the Ants are Saying

it wont be long now it wont be long
till earth is barren as the moon
and sapless as a mumbled bone

dear boss i relay this information
without any fear that humanity
will take warning and reform


- excerpted from Don Marquis, “What the Ants are Saying” as it appeared in The Lives and Times of Archy and Mehitabel. (1935)
