As if it were brand spanking new.
As if it weren’t already brewing in the dense background long before now.
Anyone would be rightfully floored!

Across growth’s dangerously fatal yet serene and deceiving borders.
If you’re in over the crown of your precious little head,
You can and will surely drown prior to coming forth. …
