CANTANKEROUS OLD FIREFLIES BUZZED AROUND THE SUGAR CANE
Cantankerous old fireflies buzzed around the sugar cane, sipping their drinks and reminiscing about the days of the Ming Dynasty when a fly could get a priceless vase for next to nothing. Oh, they had vases in those days, and the flowers you'd put in them! Why the purple you think of now as a deep, deep purple, that would have been considered a lavender back then! Oh, the the kind of purple you could get lost in, swimming around, and almost suffocating from the richness, but you could take it, you could take it because you were a man (a man firefly), and you had the strength to be suffused in the deepest of purples and feel it all and stand up and fly.
