Starlings swarming over Congress Street in Boston on a fall evening set to the track Overcome on my album The Air Out There
The bugs were first discovered in the sheep’s matted wool. They came from somewhere extra-terrestrial. Most agree they came on a meteorite. The first major infestation was found in Scotland, if the history books are to believed. Too little was recorded and too few records remain to have any certainty. The bugs control most of us now. But we few ‘invisibles’ keep the species alive. Well, truly alive. The bugs will always need hosts, after all. We will build our numbers, though. Slowly, eventually, we will rise again. We know their weakness and we have a plan.
