In The Lap Of The Gods

QOTD:
It’s so funny, there’s nothing to laugh about
My money, that’s all you want to talk about
I can see what you want me to be
But I’m no fool

— Freddie Mercury

QOTD:
You think I’m a thug
I hear you thinking I’m a thug, sentimental like a thug
Well I lack the physique but, yes sir, it’s a brutal tribe
We dive for pearls in the drain and hold dying competitions
Who can squirt blood furthest into the mouths of our cannibal overlords

— Robyn Hitchcock

Backstory: “The original title of the song was ‘My Vision of World Empathy’. Either we will become extinct and eventually be replaced by cats with articulated thumbs who have evolved the way apes slowly evolved into us. Or we will become empathic and mildly telepathic – people like Donald Trump won’t happen because biologically no human will be born with that lack of empathy. We will become a species that isn’t capable of bullying because we can feel what we’re doing to other people.” — Robyn Hitchcock

Locale: The facade of a Mexican clothing store in Stapleton

Equipment: Nikon D7100 / AF-S Nikkor 50mm f1.8 G
