This chapter is an info-dump
This chapter is an info-dump -
So much to tell you! Pump-pump-pump!
Got scenes to set! Got big ideas!
Two thousand words should make it clear.
You know that thing, it can’t do that
because that other thing. In fact
it used to do that, then that other
thing occurred. Now don’t you love a

to give you background, set the stage,
with histories and landscapes pouring
forth? No? What do you mean, it’s boring?
OK, OK, I’ll think again.
I don’t know why I waste my pen.
