Exercise 110706

Resist but only like

those cheap nail clippers,

the ones that break

at the slightest resistance.

It doesn’t pay to

rock the boat otherwise

you’ll find yourself up

the creek without paddle

or raft even. Conformity

comes cheap but it

is powerful; resist or

fight is futile. And

the currency for all

of this is simple;

it’s easy to acquire.

And flight is nigh

impossible unless you have

one of these: a

pass. But they don’t

make them anymore; production

was halted because of

cost. No one could

justify the expense anymore.

So they slowly changed

the terms, but you

weren’t to know. You

weren’t even born. Yet.

Yeah, so fight back

if you want. Tell

you what, let’s go

retro. How about a

game of Counter Strike?

Kill two birds with

one stone then. Well?

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.
