July 25, 2019 New-Den Living down here, a few hundred feet from the surface, in their sewage, eating their leftovers, we are all bound to die a little too early. Turns out, the lack of sunlight is the most damaging.
Every year we send one of our health advocates to collect data from every urgent care, vaccine station, and doctor across the Swell*. Of course, we hear the usual- high percentages of disease, anemia, bacterial infections, and the overwhelming bouts of plague. It’s always been well-known that living like a rat could kill us quicker, but the recent spikes in suicide rates have caused Dr.’s to pay more attention to cases of depression and vitamin deficiency.
You’re urged to get to your nearest vitamin center for an injection if you’re experiencing many of the following symptoms:
- Muscle weakness
- Joint pain
- Hair loss
- Frequent infection or illness
- undiffused anger
- Difficulty focusing
- Irritable bowels
- Memory loss
Down here, we choke on our cabbage scented air. We build on top of other buildings, connecting one side of the fissure to the other because that’s all we’ve got. We can’t expect those on the surface to spare us some light, either. It’s just another way to keep us down.
So what’s our message today? … Don’t let them win. Find the light.
