While laying down on my bed with my face pointed downwards on the floor, my mind is busy sorting out things. I am thinking about writing my first post for this blog, and about the hot weather that is making everyone including me, crazy and mostly about the ants which are wandering here and there on my carpet. I am in a habit of screeching the skin around my nails with my other hand’s nails and I feel pleasure doing it. Sometimes blood comes out and I feel a slight burning or pain but most of the time I don’t.
I was doing the same today and throwing tiny scrapes of my skin on the carpet when I noticed that a lot of ants have been gathered around them. So I left everything and lied down to observe them.
Small identical black ants have covered a comparatively large pale yellow skin part as if it were black in color. Some ants are in a rush while grabbing a small part in their mouth. Two of them are trying to take one piece in opposite sides and no one is succeeding, so they are in the same position from quite a time now. Do ants eat human skin and flesh ? That information was new to me. I mean how do it taste like… bitter ?
I know I sound gross to the decent people. They’d be thinking, how messy this new girl is. I have a question for you decent people… Do you know how do it taste like ? I mean the human flesh and skin ? I have seen you eating it.
Last summer I was walking down the street when I saw some young boys who belonged to a big dangerous political party and they were beating an innocent man for not giving them the money they asked for. People passed by and no one tried to stop them. No one called the police as they were afraid, police will arrest them instead of arresting these guys because they were the power stronger than police and judiciary. Those guys left and then I saw people eating their flesh and skin. I felt the taste in my mouth too.
Every time I see people accusing each other, back biting and fighting with their own brothers, I feel like they eat each other’s flesh and skin. Every time a young cool kid disrespects his parents, I feel his tummy full with their flesh. Every time I see young dudes laughing and harassing the girls passing by, I start feeling vomiting with the smell of human flesh and skin spread around them.
Oh and some days ago, I saw the news on TV. A mother ate her daughter and son alive. She killed them because according to her, their was no food for them to eat and they had no money. She must have enjoyed the meal. This type of news is not new, many mothers and fathers eat their children daily because they get scared of poverty.
And hence I see all this and I don’t have the courage to stop anyone, anything. I can feel the taste in my mouth too right now, It definitely is ‘bitter’. We humans have become ‘zombies’ with’ minds’. We engrave humanity and eat fresh flesh. These innocent ants are not guilty. And… I never knew they can eat human flesh and skin too.
