Palm Towers: A Condo For Woodworms

________________________________________________________________________________________________


© Oliverio

But not all woodworms 
need apply.

Only those directly descended
from the woodworm present
on Noah's Ark.

That woodworm was
THE STOWAWAY 

And reported his findings 
to Julian Barnes

Evidently, Noah was not
as heroic as other reporters 
Biblical scholars would 
have you believe.



Part of what that 
Woodworm had to say:

While they said they’d take two of each  species, when it came down to it... 
Some creatures were simply 
NOT WANTED ON VOYAGE.
That was the case with us;
that’s why we had to stowaway.

And any number of beasts,
with a perfectly good legal argument 
for being a separate species,
had their claims dismissed.

No, we’ve  got two of you already,
they were told.
 

Well, what difference do 
a few extra rings around  the tail make?
We've got you, Sorry.
