The bomb

I feel awkward today. What good is being a bomb if you never go off? It's like being a writer without writing. If you have the power to kill tens of thousands of people and you never do it, what kind of bomb are you? Can you say that you are a bomb if you never explode? I feel awkward today... I should do something...

Hm, I never looked at it from the bomb's point of view...

An exploded bomb has no further purpose.
An unexploded bomb is an ever-present threat, unrevealed potential. An unexploded bomb has power that the exploded one has dissapated.

I think this bomb had rather been a tree...

Hmmm.. I hadn't thought of it as potential... And a tree? Maybe so...

Thanks for all remarks...
