One by One

Like ants they march,
one by one,
to their deaths,
toward the sun.

Little by little,
they fall away
into the grave
then to heaven, I pray.

More join in
to replace those lost,
never knowing
the ultimate cost.

Yet still they march
as others fall,
one by one
to the devil’s call.

Prompt: One by One
