Seven Original Fables
by Lini R. Grol « View this author's BIO
Once there was an anthill in which one thousand ants lived. The anthill was old and rather rundown, it was no longer comfortable to live in. Besides, the whole field around it was quite bare, which made finding food for the thousand ants an ever-growing problem.
All the ants knew something should be done, but no one did anything. They worked harder and harder as things went from bad to worse.
And as if they had not enough problems, one day something terrible happened. A man with a big shovel came and shovelled the anthill upside down and all the ants had to scramble for dear life. Not knowing what to do all the ants ran in circles wailing and whining as they ran. Well it was really too bad for them. But one little ant, his name was Anton, he stopped and dropped what he was carrying and he shouted angrily: "You there with the big shovel, what do you think you are doing?"
