The Nature of the Beast

by Kilmo

There’s an animal that eats its tail,

On an island where even the grass moves,

A spring,

Oiled with sweat,

That can see through years,


It can eat through lives,

Enough to fill continents,

And pick children from its teeth,

Like ghosts,

Until it’s done.

‘According to geographer Richard Heede,[36] Aramco has led the list of companies with the highest level of CO2 emissions globally since 1995 with a towering 1,707 million tonnes (1.680×109long tons; 1.882×109 short tons) in 2013, amounting to almost 3.4% of worldwide anthropogenic emissions.’

Kilmo – Apparently the ‘Cutting Sword of Justice’ attacked them…why not ey? They’ve been giving melting down the planet’s ice caps for years.

‘The group later indicated that the Shamoon virus had been used in the attack.[48] Due to this attack, the main site of Aramco went down and a message came to the home page apologizing to customers.[49] Computer security specialists said that “The attack, known as Shamoon, is said to have hit “at least one organization” in the sector. Shamoon is capable of wiping files and rendering several computers on a network unusable.’

Kilmo – I’m justifiably paranoid abut the ‘Shamoon’ Virus. I do not want the Shamoon virus….please.
