I am a god unto the ants

I am a god unto the ants.
With a tiny effort I could
lift the bottle cap, that is now
blocking their procession and which
they must manuever around, thus
making all those lives easier.
Or I could crush them underfoot
even without knowing I have,
while wearing these heavy workboots.
Smiling on the oblivious
I hurry on my own business.
