Deep Thinking

I've been sitting here, watching insects drawn towards a street light, thinkin'.

What is it that pulls the little bastards there? It can't be about the light... or can it? Do they spend all day flying as Icarus, only to return each night to seek easier "suns?"

Moths ain't the only bugs drawn to the flame, but they are the most noticable. They're large and slow. Even pulsating lights seem to draw them. So why is it that lighting bugs don't have a trail of insects swarming behind them?

Just very tired, curious, and confused.
