Fire ant with a hunger pain gut be gone
Fire ants are a tenacious species of insect known to go above and beyond when defending their territory or attacking a predator. Hunger pains are literally a pain in the stomach used by the body to physically let us know we must eat. It is also often used as a metaphor describing a person’s will to succeed, no matter what has to be done.
Aesop is wishing away all those people who will do anything at the cost of their fellow man to get what they want. This seems like the main reason he withdraws from society and refuses to directly address issues. It is much easier to get high and forget than stand up and fight against it
