A view from under the pew: ella the unenchanted ant

By Gary Mitchell: CNJ religion columnist

just the other day boss i
ran across a disillusioned
young insect

ella the apathetic ant was
ambling down a church
aisle bemoaning the state
of her life and the church
pew underworld around her

life looks so hopeless
ella moaned nothing
really matters anymore
i don t matter anymore
nobody matters anymore

and besides i really don t
care about it at all
says she after all who
really cares nobody cares
and i don t care
i don t care i don t care

you have to care says me
if you don t care everything
loses its importance in life

so what says the impertinent
little ant
