Status: O THE BEEKEEPERS ************** We learned of them first when the missiles rose to destroy Korea. The silvery discs appeared and neutralized the warheads. The discs remained hidden until two years later, when a manned voyage to Mars was bedeviled by the strange visitors. Telemetry was lost, and the cosmonauts aborted the mission. Since then, no probe has been permitted beyond the troposphere. The discs have become daring lately, skimming over population centers and straining carbon monoxide from our atmosphere. We are not slaves. We are not free. We are somewhere in between. They are beekeepers, and we lack even the smallest of stings. -- This post is COPYRIGHT 1995, Andrew Solberg. All rights reserved.
