Shit maybe it’s not a fun world
Oh wait I just remembered gorillas can do sign language
On the news there is footage of a hotel exploding
Charts of diseases spreading, images of cities burning, people killing each other
It’s bad everywhere and it feels like it might not be good ever again
There are meteors crashing into golf courses, fire departments are ablaze
Flying squirrels on fire!
Boxes made of steel and the bars are closed
Also just remembered the spinning gorilla gif
