I've been catching up on this visually wonderful phenomenon called Game of Thrones. In a recent episode, many were sacrificed due to the thickness of blood. All of it, the ruthlessness, the aggression and the deceit reminded me of my ex-partner and his family.
They could not deign to be as interesting as this fabled soap opera, but they were just as awful. I have no contact with any of them, although only five years ago the matriarch told me that should I split with my abusive ex-partner, I should get custody of our son, for according to her I was better for him that his biological father. Now, nothing.
There is no good in humankind. I'm sure of it.
