The plan failed. No crowd appeared.
Scouts were sent; one found a dog walker.
"Keep a distance," he called, "there's a deadly virus! Stay home, stay safe!"
The Martians left at once.

The dragon grinned. "Why don't you take me to yours?"

Copyright must be abolished. The fact that anything created today will never enter the public domain within any of our livetimes proves that the system has failed. We have an obligation to exercise civil disobedience to protest the broken system. I will shed no tears for billionares caught up in the flack. They never shed a tear for the tens of thousands of people they screwed with expensive lawsuits, nor the billions they screwed out of their rightful inheritance of the collective works of humanity.

It's your obligation as a good citizen to pirate shit.

A thought I had at a news chatroom earlier:

Me before quarantine: "I should avoid coffee"

Me during quarantine: "...What if I can't buy more coffee?"

Situation here in Chile is more or less controlled and I'm actually half expecting that the quarantine could be stretched for longer.

"Do not let them make you into a god," the old cat said.
"Why not?" asked the kitten. "Am I not worth it?"
"If you accept you are their god, you accept the duties, not just the privileges."
"If you don't accept both, you let them make you into a demon. Are you worth that?"

The knight rode up to the tower.
A dragon looked out of a window, high up.
The knight held up a basket.
"Your food delivery."
"You're a hero! Please leave it by the door."

I stare into the void. It is black, unfathomable.
I wait.
Eventually, I hear it. A warm, comforting rumble, the sound of a universe working, yet at peace.
My gaze widens, my view opens, the void shrinks, and I find myself looking at my cat, asleep, softly purring.
I am comforted.
