Tradition (an older one)

By Scott Bailey 2015

Tradition is the echo of oppression
The long shadow of old power
The dark night of the poor
A back drop for wealth’s fireworks
Yet its the poor who cling
Fast to slow-moving tradition
As the controllers far above
Play their fears like violin strings

Tradition

By Scott Bailey 2017

Knocking on the wall
Of traditions fine castle
And you can hear
The echoes
Of generations
Of oppression
All dressed up
In it’s best silk finery

Meet the Characters – Richard

Mankind Limited

Mankindd Limited

Richard

Richard burns. He burns with a fury that is too bright for him to look at. He fights the system in whatever inventive ways he can concoct.

He never asks why he fights or what his ultimate goal is. He just needs the fight.

So defeat almost crushes him, forces him to ask himself questions he has been afraid to ask all his life.

Can he survive the answers?
