the unaccountable

have a special friend--- a third party between themselves & any conversation or action, who resides in the sky. have a special friend--- who they can read about in books of fiction written by others who needed that special friend in order to validate any conversation or action which they might have or do, by residing in the sky. have a special friend--- who listens when they cry, who backs them when they shout, who acts as a third party for others using this same excuse to gather & pretend together, as grown adults in a kindergarten setting, hoping one day to reside in the sky with it. have a special friend--- who gets used as a subtle excuse when they murder, when they rape, when they steal, when they burn & destroy anyone or anything in their path & when they praise it after doing so, all others who pretend with them believe in their hearts that if said special friend allowed it to be, then of course it was “good.” have a special friend--- and they will remain that way until someone holds them accountable.
