The Ant and the Grasshopper

    Clocking in at half-past eight      
The ant is never ever late
No time for laughter or for play
  He scrimps and slaves his life away.  

The grasshopper basks in the sun
His work is never ever done
Yet he has time to smile and dream
And softly play a summer theme.
A red ant known as Q4AP,
Was one of a large colony,
And until he was hit
By falling bird shit
He believed in equality.

The grasshopper enjoyed leisure
And played music purely for pleasure.
As he earnt not a cent
And never paid any rent,
His wife left him for good measure.
