The Centipede

While taking a walk I came across a centipede trying to fight off ants that were attacking it.It was curled on on itself and the whole thing made me kind of sad. What made  things worse was that when I passed by again the centipede was on the side of the path…dead,the ants had carried it to their home.But sad as I was for the centipede I couldn’t help but admire the tenacity and dedication of the ants.Such is life.
