'Ants' by Lyn Martin

Ants,

thousands,

eating leaves.

I don’t like them - not really

I’ve seen red ants - they sting the back of your legs

Black ants carrying sticks and leaves

The black ants build their nests like birds

Ants come in their thousands

Black ants bite

Ants are funny cos they tickle you

They make you itch

A bit like spiders
