Royer’s Madcap Experiences: What Be This Madness?

You purchase a tent for camping.  Perhaps you add accessories– a lantern, a portable cook-stove, a reinforced, inflatable side-hut.  That is not the issue here.

You drive to an area where there are trees, dirt, brush and perhaps a nearby stream.  The stream is filled with the piss of industry, so it is merely for show.  You rip the tent from its box.

It’s beyond complicated.  There are too many poles, too many little fabric loops that must be delicately threaded and it is getting darker by the minute.  The people you have brought– they may be family, they may be hookers– are standing by impatiently.  It’s ALL on you, my friend.

The instructions are suddenly taken up by a fervent wind.  They are gone forever.

You try to use your intuition but there is now no hope.  The construction will lead to a deepening confusion, increasing levels of consternation and then, ultimately, madness.

And that’s where we are now.
