Ad Infinitum

But who’s to know what tomorrow holds? It’s not like it’s only dictated by the past. Silly as it  sounds, fabled ETs might land, Or crazy leaders start the final war at last. A war no one wants, but most won’t say; Stakes are too high, even fat cats will lose. They don’t understand any […]
