Cradle Song?
The internationalist struck tonight. They flex their might even as they near
that final approach to the End. Could this be the beginning of their Death
Throes, those uncontrollable spasms of dying things? But this "thing" has many
hearts. Will it die if one heart stops beating? Two? How many hearts does
the thing have? It makes no difference really the number of hearts, or brains,
or limbs, it is still going to die. The thing is rotting from inside out and
strikes out just as the "maddog" strikes out while it is waiting to die. Earth
will shake with glee when the thing takes its last breath. Mother Nature will
have a cup of mead.
