Grasshoppers. Millions and millions of the creatures fill the streets here. Although not widely reported in the media, Edmonton is falling apart because of a scourge of grasshoppers. If there is a god perhaps it has finally understood the depth of this city’s crimes against humanity and is punishing it accordingly. Edmonton is indeed a city of untold sin.
The grasshoppers have been endowed with divine powers. They leap onto apartment balconies hundreds of feet above the street. They clog engines of vehicles with their dead. They will not rest until the people of Edmonton have been properly punished. Or until the first frost. Whatever comes first.
