Alliance

why’s it so easy for 

a group of ants to 
hang out together
without playing favorites,
without making one 
feel out of place?
let’s say 
one ant from a 
different colony 
drops by.
there’d be no 
awkwardness,
no ants of ebony 
judging its 
red exterior.
blend in, 
you’re one of us now,
one of them
will say.
If only humans 
behaved the same way.
