Born – live – die tomorrow
Just read a non-essential tit-bit that a Dragon Fly has a life span of 24 hours.
Shame – poor little critter.
Born – live – die tomorrow.
But does he even know that.
In his little brain, does 24 hours equate to 100 human years maybe.
So out he comes, sniffs around for a milli-second, hops for a bit over the swamp. Wow! he spots an edible whatever, gobbles, digests, plonks it out all in like seconds.
Blinks and that’s his night time sleep – done.
Shakes himself loose – gym done.
Checks out some more fodder – whoosh – gone – digested – meal time over.
And so the little guy goes on.
And he has 24 hours to repeat this over and over and in between he finds a wife, fathers like a hundred others like him.
You get the picture.
24 hours ain’t that bad after all.
In fact, at that pace, I would want my life to end, like quickly.
Just a thought…….
