I love this poem just because it is funny...you know? It's just different;
I mean, you don't just go and write poems about an anteater eating your
aunt. I like it. It's really funny.

What a cute poem. Growing up I would call me Aunt - "Aunt" Cathy and not
Ant Cathy. My friends all thought I was strange. They said it the other
way. "Ant" Cathy. My aunt would say, "Ants crawl on the ground, but Aunts
are your friend." Too funny.
