No dancing in the Sun!
Long and harsh Winter may come sooner than expected.
Don't envy the Grasshoppers!
Grasshoppers can suffer alone and die alone; but Ants as community cannot drag other innocent members down just because he wants to sing song and merry go round!
The reality of life when AFC 1997/1998 taught his generation the biggest lesson in life and transformation to Ants. Looking around at those folks in his generation, many are Ants!
