A Base-Line Neanderthal (REVISED)


Being government officials reporting to a base-line Neanderthal
is strange indeed, so while Kaspersky makes our life hell Mdm
Pompadour struts her stuff, insulting all and sundry showing no
love or regard, disgracing her victims to vague feelings of chaos
mangled by fear

Today I’m sitting in the dark, a government servant who is too
unimportant to merit light, forced to work in dimness where the
too-bright computer screen hurts sensitive eyes, all while Mdm
Pompadour, after slaughtering everyone and causing mayhem
on board while sinking the Terminology ship with her

Piratical attacks, decides as only our Neanderthal captain can
and must to fake illness for another happy holiday thus leaving
us front-line soldiers to fend for ourselves yet again…
