WISE MAN [turning over the pages of a book]. Where is that passage I am to explain to my pupils to-day?

I wish that my pupils had asked me to explain any other passage, for this is a hard passage. [The FOOL comes in and stands ...

Overview

WISE MAN [turning over the pages of a book]. Where is that passage I am to explain to my pupils to-day? Here it is, and the book says that it was written by a beggar on the walls of Babylon: "There are two living countries, the one visible and the one invisible; and when it is winter with us it is summer in that country; and when the November winds are up among us it is lambing-time there." I wish that my pupils had asked me to explain any other passage, for this is a hard passage. [The FOOL comes in and stands at the door, holding out his hat. He has a pair of shears in the other hand.] It sounds to me like foolishness; and yet that cannot be, for the writer of this book, where I have found so much knowledge, would not have set it by itself on this page, and surrounded it with so many images and so many deep colors and so much fine gilding, if it had been foolishness.

    A prose on the Roleplay we all know of.

    No one will ever know this place like we do. We suffered, agonized, destroyed, loved, hated, cultured, destroyed, harbored, diminished, tore away, and built up things no one may ever remember. <p> We took lives, we stole hearts, we removed the senselessness of those who are known as newbs, and we stood against tyrrany. No one will ever notice this place, a convening space for the lost. <p> We saved ourselves, quitting and forgetting the greif we know. We hurt ourselves coming back and remembering the pain like a child returning to his or her nightmares, but unwillingly so. No one will know the complications we went through, or the promises we kept; the broken pacts, and our soiled innocence; and our revised uselessness in fear and lonliness. <p> No one, not ever, will ever know what we do or who we were in this place, The Congregation of Scarlet Letter. <p> ~Meauthurist.
