A bridge too far
This long foot- bridge made of glass over a deep canyon in
China, one can walk and look down at the same time but
be careful not to fall which is easy when not looking down.
When peering into the storm- grid at the shop that sells
canned tomato sauce I often see rats using it as a walkway
the rodent looks up but feel safe less if I lose my car- keys
into it rats are notoriously bad drivers.
When the bridge falls down, all bridges do if not dismantled,
big shards of glass will hit the ground hard fly up in the air again
pulverized and fall down as hailstones that will pierce all living
thing except rats in storm drains.
Muammar Gadhafi sought refuge in a storm drain when
French helicopters shot up his jeep. A rat too big to fit in a drain
was lynched by the mob that at the time was our allies.
