THE MCMURDO’S STATEMENT
(An Incident at the Royal Geographic Society)

Discretion must be my primary aim...
“The truth still sleeps in the infinite depths”
My lie is reflected just in an unexpected... face,
“My privileged mind will give birth to the golden door...”
Still... Closed

Request - Rejected - A plan’s still in a larval stage,
Unknown floods flowing through time and space,
But I need desperately, a reallocation of these funds,
Or You’ll face the rage of the Kadishtu brotherhood...

“Hell, they are just men... distinguished members of the society”

Listen ... My Command

“We should do better not to pronounce certain words,
It’s not convenient, to speak about extortion and threats.
But if we can’t obtain these funds I will be compelled to,
Mention certain shameful secrets all you know are true.

I only see a group of weak and plucked fowls,
Playing with their new toys; guided by old fashioned rules.
You bunch of affected people don’t you dare reply to me,
The way you lead this institution it’s a shame (disgracefully)”

Do not oblige me - to punish you - frail minded fools
Because behind me - there are powers you can’t understand
Interests - that come from - places you - can’t imagine

I only see a group of weak and plucked fowls,
Playing with their new toys; guided by old fashioned rules.
You bunch of affected people don’t you dare reply to me,
The way you lead this institution it’s a shame (disgracefully)”

I can assure you - cretins - that I will end
All this family shelter...
With this warm environment...

My life past before my eyes...
A child fighting against the world,
Stoically and without letting up in the struggle,
The countless hardships caused by the hunger,
The cruel repression of the authorities...

Stoically... I always fought alone
I was walking along without help from anyone

It’s my time
It’s my chance
I won’t let it go

By joining this brotherhood
I will starve no more
