Monkey Always Wins
Kids flicker the whip-flash of their pistola tongues at all we’ve built up over the years. A sure sign that we need a tyrant to tell us what to do. Someone with iron hands to snuff out remaining embers of magic and mystery that distract from our chores. Reduced to burning the bones of ancestors to keep warm, and we bet our wages on the beast of our choice, but science has proven that monkey always wins.
