There’s something in tradition!


D. David Croot has been writing on and off (pretty much continually) for nineteen hundred years. He is no preternatural creature, no real special abilities or heightened desires to speak of, but he’s put in his four-trillion hours and it’s all for you my sweaty precious and sublimely beautiful creatures.

It truly is an honour to be read, feel free to share comment and tell me how much you hate my writing!

really tear it apart!!!


Steve works at his chip shop

Steve is fat, no hair or figure and no facial expression other than gormed

He laughs at everything

He’s living the dream

He is our Steve, doing the same thing day in day out

His chips aren’t even that good, they are soft, floppy and malformed

He cannot count change and only accepts chatter

with that ever bobbing head of his

Everybody knows Steve

When he dies his son’s who work at his chip shop,

who are fat, have no hair or figure and no other facial expression other than Steve’s

will be fulfilling a sort of prophecy of tradition

they have no idea about the repetition of their outcome


it’s these slender notions that influence where we eat.
