Dancing to the sound of the latest beat
Hordes and hordes of marching feet
Tapping out the rhythm on the barrel of a gun
Living in a world where we won't see the sun
So much for back to normal, eh? No, friends, this is the new normal.
This is a world that by outward appearances is like the world you lived in, say, ten years ago. But it isn't. This is for all intents and purposes a parallel reality we all find ourselves in. You are now an exile from your old world and have to learn to live in this new one.
I'm not speaking metaphorically. I can't explain the science of it and I don't even care to. I don't rightly know if it can be explained. But here we are nonetheless.
I'm sure there are a lot of people who tell themselves what we're seeing in Washington is a rational and proportional reaction to a bunch of unarmed LARPers who, after being egged on by all kinds of creepie-crawlies and then ushered in by the cops, ran around and acted like a bunch of assholes, exactly as the demon-driven freaks in the corridors of power wanted them to.
But I don't think any of those people actually believe this makes any sense. They're just all too aware of the crushing penalties for letting anyone know they don't believe it.
It's so weird; when I was speculating that the election would be postponed or canceled, I was envisioning exactly what we're seeing in Washington. Mind you, I haven't a fucking clue "what's really going on" and I'm not going to bother to speculate. It won't change anything and I'm too busy working on the cheat codes to this new reality anyway.
Here's a good place to start. This is your immediate future: familiarize yourself.
SO MANY ELIZABETHS, SO LITTLE TIME (BABY III)
With such words, the Sibyl chants fearful enigmas,
from her shrine, echoing from the cave,
tangling truths and mysteries as she raves
It's the droplet,It is the droplet on my toothIt's the spangleIt is the spangle maker
Midnight has only just begun, brothers and sisters. Upside? These people haven't a clue what they're fucking with and it will all end in tears for them.
Remember, I have a limited supply of slightly-irregular "remainder" copies of The Endless American Midnight I'm offering at a steep discount! The cover art is slightly out of whack but the books are otherwise exactly the same.
If you'd like one, I'm offering these puppies for $15 postpaid in the US! They are going FAST so don't delay.
