The truth is simple: man is evil. He is a beast; a small step up from the savage. In the truest unadulterated form of being, men grouped themselves: by color, religion, or social and economic status.
if we all looked alike man would gather together based on the size of his genitals. The holocaust would come again.
I only say this because it was the only way I could simplify the actions of the human beasts which I called neighbors in the river town I called home. Hatred and ignorance hung in the air like a thick mist of shit.
A square mile mistake was my purgatory for the greater part of my life. In God’s fish bowl experiment, I was the case study. I was the hamster. I was the rat trying to exit the maze, but at least the rat had cheese for an incentive of possible escape.

About the Author

David Joseph was born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised in a small, Blue Collar town on the banks of the Delaware, within a stones throw of Philadelphia. He had been writing since the age of nine; after his father said he would finance his first book with a dime a page. He often wrote stories and his teachers let him read them aloud, in front of his peers during class.
David traded in the pen for a basketball, when he thought sports might take him away from the river town. It didn’t. At nineteen he began to hit the stage as a Stand up comic and toured clubs through out the country. Later he attended the University of South Florida. This was where he learned to scribe Screenplays. He caught the writing bug again, and aimed his eyes for LA, with visions of penning scripts and making films. The road was a tough one. He moved to San Pedro, the most southern part of Los Angeles, which seemed light years away from Hollywood. It was during this time he picked up his writing again and started crafting short stories about his past and California experiences, while still penning scripts. That was how he fought off the isolation of the Harbor city.
