The Devil Is Coming To Town
Uh oh here he comes. Apparently the citizens in your town couldn't keep it in their pants. You made too many of yourselves. Now you're a viable market! You brought this on yourselves!
Your sleepy town, with its bakeries, fish markets, and produce carts, will soon be replaced with fluorescent warehouses and parking lots.
He will give you a 10% employee discount. He will give you convenience. He will make you wear an embroidered polo shirt and khakis. He will give you wall-to-wall carpeting and central air conditioning. You will give him your health. You will give him your self-respect. He will make your town safe, comfortable, boring and miserable.
You can't resist. Join him or learn to enjoy destitution and isolation.
