    This piece ought to have won the blue haiku contest. Pity that the judges prefer writing that is light and easily digestible over writing that is poignant and momentous.

    It makes one wonder: what happened here? And what is going to happen next? It evoked all sorts of images in my head, desperate ones. Strong!
