The Slum Lord (For H.P. Lovecraft month and the next election)

He awoke from a dream about a great cyclopean city of titan blocks and sky-flung monoliths, all dripping with green ooze and sinister with latent horror aside a gray, dead sea.

The next day was a busy one.

Accountants advised him to start with a single building. Architects proposed replacing non-Euclidean geometries with a simple cube. He personally nixed green ooze in favor of his trademark gold.

Unfortunately, not even the influence of ancient evil could sway the level headed Danes.

Frustrated, in the early hours of morning he tweeted the artist's conception of his failed tower project.
