Season of the Hag

Q. G. Pennyworth

It is the season of the Hag
The season of the Sin Eater
A time of silent screaming
Of no resolution
Of no end to work
It is the season of Madness
Black cats and black hats
Of enthusiastically being the bad guys
Jerks for Justice
And I am no worthy vessel
All cracked and chipping
My alchemy unfit to the task
Of turning shit to purest gold.

Q. G. Pennyworth

You can't get out backward.  You have to go forward to go back.. better press on! - Willie Wonka, PBUH

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

"World domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer to call it world optimisation."

I want this as a rather sizable and framed wall print, what do?

Suffer, unfortunately. It's sized for the half page and won't scale very nicely.

I really really like that


In my town, these MAGA fucks have become so obnoxious, there is this impulse to return the favor

but as you say -- this is the way "Of no resolution, Of no end to work"


if all I can do is return fire, then all I can do is escalate & perpetuate

I become locked in an orbital position, stuck looping around a toxic planet


just shit


no gold for them
no gold for me

Look, I know you get out what you put in but if what you got out was "it's not worth it *so don't bother*" then maybe I need to work on this.

Expressing distaste for MAGA freaks is not giving up.

Just saying.

not clear if you were responding to me or dok... Is

Quote"it's not worth it *so don't bother*"

your interpretation of my post?

cause definitely wasn't my reading of your poem


I thought your piece was saying

Look, ideally,
when They Go Low We Go High
and ideally
we'd find some way to meet and agree and convert and convince
but I ain't got the patience for that this year.

so we get no resolution
we just return fire, going lower and lower


the line about how your alchemy is unfit to turn shit into gold seemed to say that this is not ideal, but it is what it is

Q. G. Pennyworth

ok sorry I misunderstood. Things are hard and I have the grumps.
