In Which Black Super Ants Are Blamed

The next time all your lights go out you may
Pause for a moment ere you make that call
To yell at your utility, OK?
Another cause may be at work, is all
I want here to suggest. Take Gloucestshire,
A Lasius neglectus band, a pure
Unholy nuisance: black ants who are bound
To be drawn to electric currents more
Than even food and drink. These Asian ants
Can thus cause black-outs, fires by the score
And vastly outbreed natives. There's a chance
That they're already over here as well,
Ant overlords who'll make our lives a hell.
