Contacts…

Monkeys don’t normally wear pants… But our Monkey King… Can be seen on the illustrative map… Wearing a skirt… And top… Both Sandy… And Pigsy… Wear lower garments which can best be described… As pantaloons… And in the Tee Vee version… Of the story… Monkey is similarly attired… Dress a monster… As a man… And the two… Are almost indistinguishable… Suits and white coats and uniforms… Are all disguises… Specifically designed… To suck the power… From people… Muzzles as we’ve pointed out before… Signify someone willingly coerced… Into seeing evil but saying nothing.

You have to get down… With this… Now, before all the life… Has been sucked out of you… And your world… Which will simply wither away… Into nothingness… That’s how Demons do it… That’s the way we do it said Subodhi… After the wizard had speared one of Thulsa Doom’s demons to death… At the battle of the mounds… Ohhhhh, once giants lived here… Once, but long ago… But what would Granny Clampitt have done?… Why, she would have gone for the rifle… Which was bigger than her… And she would have used it too!… More ol’ Granny Clampitt, please… And less, much less… Ol’ Nanny State!

One of the most painful encounters… At Beacon High… Was our truck… With the careers advisor… The question of what to do with our life… Had been looming… Like the sword of Damocles… For some time… Before he eventually showed up… What a farce!… He had all the latest tools… Mac Guffin’s we might want to call them… And the computer print out… Was unequivocal… A museum curator!… Which, weirdly enough… Would not have been at all bad… But here’s the rub… Such positions… Like librarians… Are protected occupations… Even with the qualifications required… You need contacts.

 

We'd love to hear from you...
