Don’t get bogged in the verbosity; press on – this one has a destination. If you think it is bad because it is not able to be understood.. I am well aware.
to be honest, I’m not particularly thrilled about this one; it’s not that good I don’t think.. However, it has too many gems not to post so.. there!
in another sense, I am quite thrilled. This took a very long time from conception of the idea to completion .. at least a year and possibly close to two. But don’t think it took a long time because i worked really hard on it.. that wasn’t it.
idk if i like it. It’s genius for sure. But it sucks.
writing this took long enough that my uneasiness about it is actually embedded in the story … funny.
Enjoy it. There’s a lot of substance i think, so, don’t be dumb.
And thanks, if you actually make it through

“Therefore, the Romans, foreseeing troubles, dealt with them at once, and, even to avoid a war, would not let them come to a head, for they knew that war is not to be avoided, but is only put off to the advantage of others; moreover they wished to fight with Philip and Antiochus in Greece so as not to have to do it in Italy; they could have avoided both, but this they did not wish; nor did that ever please them which is for ever in the mouths of the wise ones of our time: – Let us enjoy the benefits of the time – but rather the benefits of their own valour and prudence, for time drives everything before it, and is able to bring with it good as well as evil, and evil as well as good.” – Machiavelli, “The Prince,” (Third Chapter, P. 11-12) … More Short Story: Mr. Plumber
