Artist opportunity at TACO!
This is the beginning, it’s only fitting that we consider its end.
We’ve been losing sleep over it.
Nightmares of a destroyed hot world.
The mad end.
Not with a bang but with a whimper.
A boot on your face.
Our own end.
Of elaborate plans and everything that stands.
Of fresh fruit. Of cheap french wine.
Small and inconsequential yet easier to handle don't you think?
It was only ever the means to an end.
It’ll be the end of something and the beginning of something else.
We wish it would end
for an all consuming gaping maw
for a ship of fools
for privileged white men
for the 1%
for the government
And end to all that. And end to them. Their end.
A dead fucking end for those dead end fuckers.
We can't wait
We’ll embrace it. We’ll be liberated.
No looking back.
Into the black we will go.
Beyond the known universe.
We’ll see what is on the other side.
The last great unknown.
The big ‘O’
The end of the line baby!
We’ll break through. The final trip.
We’re never coming down!
We’re never coming back!
We’ve missed our flight. The wait at the airport.
When can we get on?
When can we get off?
When will it stop?
Are we nearly there yet?
no, we’re never coming back.
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
Is it the end?
This is the end. Full stop.
No really, this is the end.
