Civilisation


The outcast was never informed of his sentence.
No gavel pronounced the full stop.
A jury of his peers could not find one among them willing to take the responsibility.
And so he wandered among them and they remained politely non-committal.
He came to the conclusion that he must have said something wrong.

No one belongs in this sorry excuse for civilization. Some adapt and become unable to survive without it.

Gerry: gotcha!

Jeff: the curse of the loner

Yodood:"this sorry excuse for civilization" - it appears to stem from the loss of personal responsibility

Harlequin: wounds inflicted by proxy
