Alfred’s Legacy


by M. J. Joachim

“Abolish slavery, man! What, are you nuts or something?” two little ants argued back and forth.

“We need these adolescents to carry the weight of the load!”

Anna, the administrator ant looked at her leaders and sighed. “If you work them too hard, they’ll be worthless in the community as a whole,” she said.

All three looked at the ancient ant portrait of Alfred hanging on the wall. “Amicably, always amicably,” they said in unison. 

Then the three little ants went out into the field and relieved the adolescents of their duties. “We’re a team,” Anna said to them. “It’s your turn to sit and rest a spell.”
