Crazy Antics

I watched an ant and wondered why.
He was convinced he had to try
to climb a grass stem to the top
and down the other side none stop.
Why did he feel he had to climb?
It was a complete waste of time.
But Ants do what they want to do
I know because I've watched a few.
I don't think ants are very bright,
they very seldom get it right.
Though I can't think the way ants do.
He might have had good reason to
climb to the top and down again.
Or just may be he was insane.
