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.
