i’m not exactly an avid conspiracy theorist.
but i’m also not exactly stupid
for the entirety of the fifty five years i’ve been alive
in all the different places i’ve lived and traveled to
and as much as i’ve always been ‘plugged in’ shall we say
to news from a variety of sources
i don’t remember yet a time, when in my own experience
or in anecdotes related by another
it has been a common occurrance for birds to simply
fall out of the sky ‘en masse’.
so it seems to me that the media is pissin’ on my leg
and sayin’ it’s rain
when they try to convince me that birds
are suddenly frightened to death by fireworks, or lightning
or are lately flying into semi-trucks in whole flocks
of hundreds at a time.
that such occurances as are happening
world wide are a ‘common’ phenomenon.
certainly i’ve heard of the intermittent and often seasonal ‘fish kills’,
due, by the way, to farmland run off of toxic chemicals…
and the occasional dolphin or whale ‘beaching’.
but for the media and the scientific community that feed them
to insist that this isn’t a case of the proverbial
‘canary in a coal mine’
is just plain insulting!
how dumb are we supposed to be?
