The Ladybird Uprising of 1976
Archy had been threatening bloody insect revolution for decades.
'I'll take the bugs of all the stars and tell the of my plans', he would say, 'and fling them with their myriad stings against the tyrant man'. But nobody ever took him very seriously - he was only a cockroach, after all, and worse than that, a poet.
So despite all the warnings, 'the tyrant man' never really believed he had anything to fear, and nobody knew quite how to react that summer when the ladybirds finally attacked. The free-verse cockroach had been quiet for some time; if he was involved at all, he must have felt humankind had been given more than enough warning.

Increasingly infrequent maker of things.
Towards the end of last year, I was hired to create a new web site for International Times - once a radical underground newspaper, now whatever the 21st century online equivalent of that might be.

I'm happy with the web site, and it publishes interesting writing and art every week, but I would very much like to see more talented artists contributing illustrations, montages, and stand-alone pieces for it - so this is an appeal for anyone who might be interested in sharing their work with its audience to get in touch.
