Trying To Find The Pied Piper

"... Some steal, some deal, some trick, and some do a variety of any and every vile, and despicable act(s) the degenerate dictionary holds in its corroded contents. The larger the city, the greater the opportunity is to fall into a snakes pit of ape shit. Constantly juggling the chainsaws of our own conscience, diluted and dilated, we impulsively allow each breach of our behavior to happen so long as flag is captured and the dragon is netted. Regret is the runway every flight takes off from. We feel it under our wheels for just seconds, then glance at its remnants for a moment before we are humming numbly in the clouds. Remember though, Romeo, every flight has a finish. All blackouts usually end in whitewash." - G
