For shame

“I am trapped.

I am caught in a web, and it is small comfort to me that the web is of my own weaving. When I think of the magnitude of what I have done, I am overcome by a numb terror. I have behaved in a wicked manner, I know, perhaps a criminal manner; and every morning when I wake there is a heavy cloud over me. I ask myself what fresh disasters there are in store for me this day…"

“Oh man what did I do; what have I done; I need to get some help with this…I have to turn myself in.”

Last night, sir, I murdered my wife and my not yet born son. I don’t know why I did it, but I seemed to have liked it; I seemed to have fun. What is happening to me? What came over me? Why are you telling me to drop my gun; I haven’t got a gun?

“Sir I beg you please….”

Officer, What are these words that you speak to me? I glanced down at my hand…I do have a gun, but where did it come from; where did I get it? I paused and then took a look around. Behind me, two officers lying dead on the ground; I didn’t kill them, so why are they lying there…is someone playing some cruel wicked prank on me? What did I ever do to them?

I smiled, two officers just shot one another; serves them right for arguing the way they were.

“Put down your weapon sir please I repeat…”

Officer, I don’t know why you ask this of me, for I haven’t done anything. Are you playing a game, is this some weird simulation of when a criminal doesn’t comply with what you ask of them? Well then sir, I must say I’m finding you misleading.

Again I can’t help but laugh as the last four police officers can’t help but argue and shoot each other. I am suprised that they thought a little quarrel was worth their lives. Although since they killed each other, I guess I won’t be needing this gun any more.
