It Happens

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

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.

You want it all but you can't have it
It's in your face but you can't grab it
What is it?

I'm curious as to what your interpretation was.

Prefix the title with "Sh" :)

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.
