Rupert Studio

Wicked is the watchtower; the red brick dawn; the night of a thousand wails. Wicked are the screamers and the seers. Wicked are the catchers who round up in the early morning sunrise; in the midday heat; in the dusk; in the night. Wicked are the grey ghouls firing bullets into the clouds. Wicked are the screaming haunters creeping crepuscular around the facade. Wicked are the gargoyles leering from the building tops. Wicked are the wealthy gobbling up the weak. Wicked are the takers and the all-miners and the dead-eyed. Wicked are the white-faced grobloids wrapped in beige bandage and weeping in their wake. Wicked are the wraiths warping the sky with their plummeting screams. Wicked are the hoary graspers and the racked-up hollerers. Wicked are the steel wielding and the baton brigade. Wicked are the protectors and the pummelers and the not-on-my-turfers. Wicked are the bastards, all of them. Wicked are the money-grabbers and the landholders and the black-and-white-and-red-all-overs. Wicked are the blue-liners and the enablers and the boundary-enforcers. Wicked, wicked, wicked are they all, and may they be sloughed in the rain.
