WE ARE THE LOBSTERS

Don’t get me wrong I love to eat lobster. But in looking at these lobsters in this tank the other day I began to think that maybe, just maybe we are not at the top of the food chain as we have come to believe. Like the lobster in the tank we are all just waiting our turn with nowhere to run. Maybe it’s viruses like COVID19 that are the top of the food chain. After all was it not the bacteria that destroyed the invaders in H. G. Well’s War of the Worlds?

 

And as a movie buff I remember the scene in the diner “Pulp Fiction” (1994) when Samuel L. Jackson gave his rendition of Ezekiel 25:17

 

“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the

Inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men

Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will

shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness

for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children

And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious

Anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers

And you will know

My name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee”
