It Happens

Postby MonsieurMoustache » Tue Oct 07, 2014 8:44 am

It happens at night.

It happens if you don't
    lock your door
    kiss your mother
    stay quiet

It happens to the
    animals
    slow
    ones left outside.

It happens if you don’t follow the rules
    If you don't
      say your prayers
      say that you love them.

It happens to
    naughty children
    the infirm and elderly
    Fools.
It happens for a
    reason
    purpose
    mission

It happens to
    criminals
    the useless
    people you never really cared for, anyway

It happened before, so it’s tradition

    It's happening now, so it’s normal

      It’ll happen again, so there’s nothing to fear.

It happens all the time.

I swear if you stare at your profile picture long enough the mustache comes alive
Many on the forum have asked me, so here's my answer: a spoonful of lighter fluid. And you'll need to wash it out really well when you're done.

That would be Beatrice. Long time back Varda (another user) and I had a running series of drabbles inspired by my username that eventually became about an intergalactic invasion of parasitic moustaches. It's 'The Moustache Mythos" if you want to look it up.

What could "it" be? The thing each of us fears most? Or the thing we think others fear most? Or that the deserving should be subjected to?

Or the unthought of thing? That we cannot, dare not even imagine?

It's a messy business, trying to get into Mr Tash's twisted mind. :twisted:

It happens
to the mothers
of those who step
on a crack.

I just realised the title's significance. Good one Mr Tash :)

I'm curious as to what your interpretation was.

I did not see that. Now I can read this in an entirely new light. Pfft.

Perhaps it was your subconscious at work when you came up with that title ;)

This is pretty thought provoking. I think my favorite part is: it happens to people you never really cared about. Because it's true! It never happens to good people. Only to those wretches we wish would go away anyway.
