Go to the Ant, Consider Her Ways

Go to the ant, consider her ways
(She’s a template for hard work cliches),
One misplaced large foot:
Tiny squish, she’s kaput;
No reward at the end of her days.

Both heaven and karma declare:
Just be good, and you’ll end your despair;
But without such disguise
From your own lying eyes
You can clearly see life isn’t fair.

So what, you may ask, is the reason
For this psychological lesion?
Most likely some widget
(Like opposable digit),
In this case, for social cohesion.
