It's just a monstrous ant with paper wings.
I think I won't disturb it where it stands!
It never buzzes and it never sings.—
I wonder which is feet and which is hands?

I don't see what it's good for, anyway.
It never does a thing but stand and flutter;
I've followed it around for half the day
And haven't seen it make a bit of butter.
