"One step, two step, up the wooden hill," | The ants decided not to stop until till they reached the sill. | The leader of the ant line came to the head of a rusty screw in the wall, stopped, and turned to face the impatient followers. | "Be ready, my friends. For beyond this nail lies the salvation of our hive. The Queen demands from us only one thing -- success. So set aside your petty fears! Today we can break the hundred hour curse. Let us go forth and retrieve the | golden egg from the mole's castle!" This rallying cry usually motivated the herds of ants, who labored from day until night to please the Queen. However, the golden egg had been invoked one times too many.
