Thanks Jack. I have to say I am really getting a kick out of it myself. Not to get too deep but I felt like there was something poetic about the use of “end program” instead of “amen” to finish the prayer and I am super pleased that it caught your attention too apparently. Much like amen it can be loaded with all sorts of meaning, or no meaning, depending on the situation. As I was writing it I mostly thought of it in the traditional sense as “so be it” but also as a sort of plea. A begging to the simulator(s) to please, seriously, like now, end this fucking program. It is melancholy and sad really. Strange that it touched me so deeply, but there you have it, it did for some reason. Thanks for the comment and I am not really sure what comes next, but I’m sure I’ll think of something.
