1957 termite release

a combination of factors
lead to the release of one thousand
termites on April the 3rd 1957.
such matters were of no concern
however, to the municipal
marching band of aberystwyth.
the brass blew a farting sound
that resonated in the dales
and carried a joyous tremble
to the winged insects.

Insects hold much power CJ. When all else perishes, insects and rats will survive.

I love the way you juxtapose the band with the furious fleeing of the insects. And to think of the band making them tremble. A great idea.

just me being my usual silly self but you are right about us. we will fade and die and the insects will remain.
maybe that's what the bible is talking about when it says the meek will inherit the earth.

Burroughs had it right about the insects. Cronenberg caught it right too. I love the mad insects in Cronenberg's directing of 'Naked Lunch'. If only all typewriters were like that.
