BLURB

SSssssssssssss, thisssss issss much better than I exsssspected. I will just sssit inside thisss bizarre coloured cave and wait for them to get in. Geniussss! At leasssst I am sssafe here. No one likesssss usss very much, you sssee. Timessss of our glory have long passst. Now people have sssssome deeper unexssssplained fear and prejudicsssse towardssss my species. It all sssstarted quite a long time ago asss a sssstory or maybe a real event. I don't know. I will not sssspeculate on the authenticity or the origin of thisssss. But unlucky for ussss inssssstead of being forgotten like mosssssst of talesssssssss, it was written down by a few old men in baggy clothesssss. So now bassed on an old ragged book that I believe is called by humansss, Biblooss or elssssse, we are doomed to be kicked, ssssstamped on, prodded with stickssssss and feared. Just becausssssee ssssome lassss had an apetite for a ssssnack and one of ussss happened to be chilling on a nearby branch. Fair enough, he probably was up to sssomme ssssserious no-good missssschief himssself. [Weronika Nossowicz]
