I am sick of this. Day in and day out the same thing. Everything for The Queen and the Kingdom. I collect food and bring it back too the castle. I do not think I have ever had a vacation. I just want a little time for myself. A chance to relax a little.
Do not get me wrong. I want us to survive as much as anyone else. I am proud of my job and respect my duty, just like anyone else. It just gets so monotonous. Leave the castle, hunt food, bring it back to the castle, repeat. I have been doing this, almost ever since I could remember.
It was not always like this you know. When I first got the job I was so proud. Without you, we die! That was what the poster on the wall said. We all fell for it so easily. Adventure! You get to go wherever you want. Just follow your senses and make sure you come back with something. Nobody tells you where to go or what to do. There were so many of us and we are so strong. Who would mess with us? If anything happens the army will take care of it. Do not risk yourself. It sounded like so much fun. Out in the clean, fresh air, not stuck in that silly castle. You could see the whole world around you. (Man, am I quick. You should have seen me dodge that fly a while ago. That was one of the reasons I took this job.) No one ever told you that it just never ends. You just keep collecting supplies and bringing it back for The Queen and the Kingdom.
The Queen! Ha! I have never seen her and I do not know anyone who has. I imagine she just sits around all day eating and pumping out kids. As spoiled as she sounds I wonder who would want to be the father? I would bet it is one of those pretty boy warriors.
I could have been a warrior. You know, lay around all day, wait until we get an attack. Lazy Bastards! All they do is sit and eat. (Food that I spend my whole life collecting!) I do not think the Kingdom has ever been attacked, not in my lifetime at least. I am even bigger and stronger than them. Protect The Queen and the Kingdom at all cost! They probably mate with her just out of boredom. Though, that would have been the life, I always knew I was not that kind. I like to be busy, but this is ridiculous. I would like to have a girlfriend, but who has the time. (Except those lazy warriors.) All they, really, want to do is fight. It will be the death of them you know. I heard someone say that most times they do not even come back. I have seen the graveyards myself. There were so many of those poor bastards. (Sad.) Let them have their fun with The Queen. At least I am not waiting to die.
I do have purpose. I get food for everybody. Everybody gets his share. It is quite fair. (Dull!)
No more! It is decided. I am just going to hang out under this leaf and take a break. I do not think I could open my jaws again. As nice as it is here, I do not think I really want to. Hey, looks like there are some other guys that have the same idea. Well, I will not be alone. Finally, a vacation. Nothing to do but just hang out here under this leaf. I do not hear anyone talking. I guess they are just as tired as me. Dodging those flies earlier must have really taken it out of us. Nice! I am so tired I do not think I could move my limbs anymore. Must be because I am finally relaxing.
