Hometown America – The Cicadas Are Coming

Daily blog: It’s May 5th, 2021.

In a few weeks, billions of cicadas will come out of the ground, shed their skin, and fly to the treetops.

Yep, it’s going to be a wild party for these harmless playboys who’ve been waiting underground for seventeen years, and I wish them well.

Sing loud, my cicada friends, as loud as you can. Your love song will find a girl and bring peace to the hometowns lucky enough to have you.

Yessiree, I’ll take the sound of cicadas over the mindless dribble coming out of the TV any day.

Hometown America” is a daily blog of America life as I see it.
