THE ANT, by            
First Line: Slender her flank
Last Line: Of a learned judge.
Subject(s): Ants; Insects; Bugs

Slender her flank,
Narrow her shank,
Carved to design
Exceedingly fine.

Lugging her food
Gripped between claws
Like a pincer's jaws.

Look at her rump:
A little lump
Of blackness, which
Is new-dripped pitch.

Or you may think
It's a blot of ink,
The hasty smudge
Of a learned judge.
