One of them wants to devour his prey morning through night.

The other provides the suffering with a nest filled with protection and love.

One of them uses a harp to pluck the strings of harmony.

The other presents herself as beauty on the outside, a molecule of carbon monoxide on the inside.


One of them suffocates you with wisdom.

The other causes your kidneys not to filter toxic waste.

They both want to invite you to dinner.

One meal will leave you with a sense of hope.

The other will not agree with your digestive enzymes.


They both offer medication for your suffering.

One medication will provide you with everlasting immunity.

The other consists of many side effects: guilt, dilated pupils, and jealously.

The battle between good and evil still ensues.

In the end you decide who provides you with the nourishment to survive.
