Loneliness went quietly to his windowless cell
He used his one phone call
To contact Anxiety
Who in turn pestered the Head of State
For years
But paperwork processes slowly
For the higher-ups
And Loneliness’ sentence continued to have an undetermined expiration date
Meanwhile, Loneliness’ illegitimate children
Conspired to become terrorists
Bent on overthrowing the Head and
Finally freeing their father
From his increasingly higher class security prisons
Anxiety attempted to assassinate the Head
But failed
And slipped back into the shadows, a wanted criminal
Eventually becoming the insurgent leader of Loneliness’
Misbegotten kids and other parties who disapproved of the Head
During that war, the people and landscape of Mind were ravaged,
Thousands of innocents were slaughtered in the crossfire
Gunfire and bombings became part of a routine that no one got used to
Nowadays, the war is quieter
The insurgents become restless now and then
But usually retreat when they run out of ammunition
Loneliness has become thin and weak in his cell
The Head bides her time, hoping he’ll die in there
So she can concentrate on other things, like wiping out the insurgents
And rebuilding Mind
