It is summer …
And I was washing
dishes yesterday, after lunch.

I spotted an ant on a washed
plate that was left to dry.
I killed it with a tissue,
the next moment.
Then, I thought.
I should have carefully
taken it on that tissue
and set it free outside my window.

But I dint do that
and killed a life, instead.
So I cried,
Thinking how cruel I was.

I killed a life.
I cried thinking
how human I’m!
