Sometimes with the grind of everyday life it can be hard to find the time to think about anything other than plowing fields, tending cattle, and living a righteous and wholesome life in service of His Royal Highness The King, but have you ever stopped for a second to just take a look around you? Seriously. Take a look when you have a moment. What will you see? That’s right, pure and utterly revolting filth all over the place. Why? It’s because we are seriously living in one of the most disgusting times ever.
Everything is just so incredibly gross right now.
No matter where you are in our royal kingdom, there’s just gigantic piles of shit and grime everywhere. It’s honestly not even surprising at this point. People are literally pissing in bowls and dumping them into the street on top of people, and we wonder why everyone is sick all of the time.
People are hacking and coughing up mucous and blood all over the place no matter where you are. On top of that, the full extent of our medical knowledge involves covering sick people in leeches and sending priests to chase the devil out of your brain if you’re yelling too much. When you get sick, you are pretty much guaranteed to die. What a fucking mess.
Also, I’m probably preaching to the choir here, but I feel compelled to point out that all the food we eat is basically the most disgusting shit of all time. It’s just slop and gross meat from fucked-up, sweaty pigs that are also living in absolute garbage conditions and eating nothing but human corpses and some hay if they’re lucky. None of the food is even that good really, especially when you are poor, which pretty much everyone is. His Royal Highness and his family get to have the good shit, like veal and sweet wines, but even they get sick all of the fucking time like the rest of us. The last king died when he was, like, 12. He vomited for six days in a row and then croaked. That’s honestly fucked-up.
You’ve got to believe that other civilizations have their act together way more than we do. The bar is so incredibly low at this point.
Go ahead and try to go outside and get some fresh air. You won’t be able to. Everything smells like death and decay no matter where you are in the village. Sometimes you might smell the scent of a fire burning in the distance, which is kind of nice until you realize that whoever started it is probably just burning a dead body or something gross like that, because what would we even do with a corpse at this point? People are dying all the time for a bunch of different reasons that we won’t even attempt to list.
Life in this kingdom can get pretty crazy, so at the end of the day, it’s important to always remember that everything is just gray all of the time and it’s depressing as hell. Even when the sun is out, the heat just makes all of the garbage heaps and puddles of urine that end up all over the place smell even worse. Good luck trying to motivate yourself to do something that will please our Lord and bring good tidings to the village when you have to work in that kind of environment.
I’ll probably wrap this post up here because I’m getting all worked up just thinking about how repugnant things are at our current moment in history. What a fucked-up and disgusting world we live in. Good grief.
