I fight monsters, and fighting monsters is a tough business to be in.
In the real world, I’m an average Joe. I work a job and pay my stupid taxes. I don’t cause trouble, and I do as I’m told. I follow the rules, bub.
Sure, in my head, I get to live my life in a kind of dream world, a self-created fantasy land where I get to be the hero.. but at some point, we’re all forced to deal with reality. Gotta make the donuts, chief.
Regardless, that’s the real-world stuff, the day to day jiving while surviving. The keeping the lights on in the cave sort-a-stuff.
The only reason I’ve continued to play along with society’s little game up to this point was to have a life where I could work on my own projects, like creating music, writing stories or fighting monsters.
However, that’s all changed now. Biscuits and gravy don’t seem to cut it anymore; the rules have all been uprooted, replanted.
In fact, they can’t seem to stop changing those precious rules on us. Well, I refuse to abide by this nonsense any more.
As I’ve said before, I don’t believe any of this virus business.
Point of fact, as a scientist (physics), I don’t adhere to virus theory to begin with. I have no beef with anyone that does, but I’m being strangled to death by the fear-ridden people who do.
Have we completely lost the fundamental idea that people are allowed to have different opinions?
It kind of seems like we have.
Word on the street is that you now have to obey the whim of the masses or suffer the consequences. Democracy is sounding more and more each day like a ‘rule by mob’ type of situation.
As our rights are stripped away, one by one, the dark ages return, bringing with them all those ugly things we haven’t had to deal with for so long.
It’s become an unbearable world again, which always gives birth to the good guys versus bad guys scenario. In a lot of ways, this pushes the real world into what was just a fantasy world, for me and everyone else.
Sides will have to be chosen; stand in the middle of the road, squish like grape.
For me, I’ve already chosen.
I fight monsters.
