17-year life cycle, they say. They stay buried for years until it is their moment.
I've never seen the actual creature, the locust, in all my years. Merely the shells, the husks. I'm not sure where the locusts go. Possibly to plague the Egyptians. Something certainly needs to. Their political life cycle is something more than 17 years, but it always returns to a plague upon their people. Shells and husks are the manifestation. A wallowed out people, they.
Tensions must be high in the inner sanctum of the Israeli Defense Forces. They now have to simultaneously plan for a war with Iran while putting the hurt on irridentist Egyptians in the Sinai.
The Israelis are not looking forward to this fight, but I am. As a bit of an all-consuming locust myself, I'm ready to see them get it on.
