Exercise 100714

When is this change

going to come? Everything

is in place: the

sun rises and falls;

seasons come and go;

generations are born, grow

old, and die away.

Is there not more

to all of this —

as promised? As prophesied?

It seems so many

are waiting while others

are tearing down and

rebuilding. And the puppeteers

grow more emboldened as

they replay the same

old stories all the

while raising the price.

And why are all

the shadows growing longer

and bloody reckless too?

Are you still listening?

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
