“I had had my feelings excited and harrowed by witnessing the struggle, the ferocity and carnage, of human battle before my door.”

Henry David Thoreau ‘Walden’

“Who do you think will win, the blue or red ants?” Kick asked. She leaned over the spill of sand where the tiny creatures battled.

Nut sat with his hands under his chin, fascinated by the fight. “Well, the red ants are bigger… But the blue ants are protecting their home. I think the blue ones will.”
