To an ant

To an ant, my dining table would be the Grand Canyon,
and a big soft towel would look like a Banyan.
My plate would be like a football field
and a pot of plants would be a great crop yield.
A puddle of water would be a swimming pool
and my lap, a mountain, now isn't that cool?

An ant would travel from here to there,
from India to America and absolutely no fare!
Think of all the strange things an ant might see
To see a crumb of toast, how happy the ant would be!
It'll walk up to the crumb, boldly without fear,
Thinking to itself, boy, that food'll last me a year!
