Triffids are as unlikely,
or as likely,
a creature to exist, as any other.
Though the fact that they should bear some resemblance
to the few carnivorous plants that there are,
and that they are so inclined to perambulate
in search of human flesh,
is something that doesn’t bear a lot of thought.
Thinking about how they arrived upon this planet,
it is less through the comets’ antics,
and more about the designs of Mankind
to create a super-oil producing vegetable.
Or so the story goes.
Seeds, stolen from the Russians (allegedly)
were scattered upon the four winds (I thought there were more) and found their way to the four corners of the world (I thought there were fewer). Thus were sown the seeds, literally, for Mankind’s downfall.
If only they could have seen that.
