Slay the dreamer! Man belongs to darkness, and his passions set the world afire. Slay the dreamer - loathsome trixster and ban his fantasies as bring happiness and hope to this old Shire. How dare he! hapless monster reality colour, our emptiness disguise and dream and aught aspire! Slay the dreamer, I say, as heretic, and public enemy. A danger to us all. And let none in his arrogance, instigate the heart's yearnings, the follies of desire. Let no man rob us plain folk of the solace of our isolation the sanctuary of insignificance 27-IV-99
