The Love Bombing of Lenny the Lemming

Well there’s been this myth going around since the Middle Ages that lemmings suicide en masse. Maybe it’s a metaphor for what humans are capable of when they’re mobbing. And with humans, anything is possible. And the cabal of lemmings in this lemonous little yarn are uncannily like humans when it comes to fear. They do things human mobs do - strange things. And living amongst this mob is a young rebellious lemming named Lenny, who has grown in his mind serious doubts over the wild and dramatic mob practices his fellow lemmings engage in. And yes at times lemming life in these parts can be terrifying. Insecurity is rife, and it’s too much for the disturbed lemming element. And when panicked they morph into a lemming mob, being one in, all in, and head off into the wilderness, where as one they deal with it. Why is this so, Lenny has been asking himself. Why do they act like a mob when things get tough and troubling? And not only that, when a whole lot of them disappear, almost overnight a new lot are running about their clearing helter skelter as if nothing bad had ever happened! Populations of them! Lenny questions this behaviour at community meetings; nervously at first, but with courage and convention, his ripened voice has become very loud lately. How wrong can this lemming mob behaviour be? And can one mere lemming like him stop it? And are there other lemmings in his community who feel the same way he does? And if so what is there to be afraid of?
