Cadaverous Climate Controlled Cave Creature

(Idea engendered from Lombok earthquake: Indonesia) Nary a chink of illumination pierces thru thick cavernous rock solid chamber home to this crepuscular anchorite, who spent untold countless chunks of time holed up deep underground initially to escape deadly blight, that afflicted vast swaths of twenty first century long fostered civilization, the post apocalyptic scattered remnants forced into subterranean redoubts reliant on stowed away tallow uber wax to forge poorly guided niggardly flickering burning candlelight where quotidian ritual entails doth dight this Jainist Joplin ascetic, who already donned the mantle, sans adjustment to darkened eyesight imposing keen aural habituation to discern, and distinguish any fright full scurrying, skittering, slithering, unseen presence triggering thine nostril to sneeze, which nasal (gesundheit) claxon serves to scarify shadowy silhouetted height giving infinitesimal pause, thence worry free insight since my judicious jumbled juxtaposed metaphorical jacklight philosophies, viz Jainism, Jesuit, and Judeo-Christian allows no cavil, indiscriminate killing, nor *****sapien superiority toward multitudinous life forms instilled into former existence as good Samson Knight, now effectivel embedded, entombed, and interred within bowels of the Earth hum canticle refrains softly enunciating such psalms to eternal night.
