fdelano Posted July 22, 2012 Share Posted July 22, 2012 A worm in his brain ate at his genius, cutting circuits to sanity, opening lines of hatred and uncaring, still retaining knowledge far beyond that of his colleagues. Circumstances removed him from an academic world to one where he lived alone with his sickness and hallucinations. Other people registered only as objects to kill. He knew intimately the preparations to be made, even to the point of killing those who would find and enter his apartment, a place he would never need again, nor want. Trapped in a world of fantasy and role playing, he became the Joker, hair on fire, and prepared for the act of his life, every movement planned to perfection for maximum pleasure. Smiling with the gash of a mouth, he watched the effects of tear gas, his victims helpless as he ended their lives, no emotion running through his scrambled mind. We cannot comprehend these acts of horror, but we forget such as Buchenwald and women and children who gleefully strap on explosives to end theirs and the lives of those they have been taught to loathe. Tomorrow, or another day, a greater horror will fill our TVs and computers for days, until fresh gore demands the time of commentators who live to fill our demands of rubber-necking.
