Sprint of the Lemmings – A Cautionary Tale

The running began quite benignly, I heard, starting with one, then two, then more and more, no end in sight, no one knew why or what for, but on they surged.

The first eventually plummeted into the sea, followed by the others, one by one they disappeared into the blue, never again to be seen.

The moral of this sad tale is simply this, if you see a crowd running willy nilly, stay put…or consider running the other way, for it is wise to know, at the very least, what you’re running from; the crowd does not always know the way.

The End
