Charlotte Perkins Gilman. (1860–1935)
 
 
1
    A million million worlds that move in peace;
A million mighty laws that never cease;
And one small ant-heap, hidden by small weeds,
Rich with eggs, slaves and store of millet-seeds.
    They sleep beneath the sod
    And trust in God.
          A common Inference.

    Said I, in scorn all burning hot,
    In rage and anger high,
“You ignominious idiot,
    Those wings are made to fly!”
          A Conservative.
3
    “I do not want to be a fly,
I want to be a worm!”
          A Conservative.
