    He (and she) may be thinking “aberrant”
    And perhaps Holly’s comment was errant
    But the fact still remains
    Allgood’s counting on gains
    For there is no such law that’s now current

    There IS a reason why Dick in William Shakespeare’s, King Henry the Sixth line is so often quoted.
    “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.”

    This is getting intense. One right question or wrong answer could end this trial at any time.

    “No further questions” is okay
    It only ends that witness-stay
    And ends what’s called the “redirect”
    We’ll soon see just whose case is wrecked.

    I spent weeks on a witness stand
    My end is what their team had planned
    They’d spent more than a million bucks
    But at the end, they looked like schmucks

    And yet, that time was quite intense!
    Each answer might change all events
    And some trick wording they’d contrive
    Means your big case could take a dive!

    Holly needs ti get her spunkyness up and running, I agree she has to remember her and Wally and her future as it was.

    The Town of Silence, by Jenner
    to the tune of “The Sound of Silence”, by Simon and Garfunkel

    Hello darkness, my old friend.
    You’ve found the town we call the End.
    You bring a cloud of condemnation,
    To lay a shroud as a contagion
    On our people, who are hiding from the war
    And so much more,
    Within the town of silence.

    I see the people deep inside.
    They swallow beans, they swallow pride.
    They live with grief, they live with hunger,
    And some with shame and some with anger,
    Against a curse, that eats a human visage whole,
    But not the soul –
    The soul remains to silence.

    And of the people it did damn,
    Some dream: “I’m human, still I am.
    Ignore the fur. Ignore the feathers.
    Pretend you don’t have horns and udders.
    Hide your parts that make a decent person stare.
    And comb your hair.
    And joint the town of silence.”

    And if you think you have a say
    In how you eat and breathe and play,
    Prepare to learn your words are worthless
    To power rotten ‘neath the surface.
    So I stared in the lens, and I challenged the hiding throng
    To prove me wrong.
    It spoke the sound of silence.

    With gentle people’s lives at stake
    For such a simple thing as cake,
    Will we accept our evolution?
    Or stand and watch an execution?
    While the stooge and the puppet can’t see that our bleeding town
    Is going down.
    It is the town of silence.

    And in a vision mad I saw
    Ten thousand people, maybe more.
    People screaming out in fury,
    Tearing down the judge and jury.
    Tell the pow’r we’re the future and we’re human, so give us voice.
    Respect our choice.
    Or reap a town of violence.

    Crystalwizard: Comment noted, but a personal word or warning. Do not underestimate Mr Neathery and the stories he tells.
    By all means, let us know this story is not to your particular taste and is not sustaining your interest or meeting your needs as a comic. That’s okay. We may all look for something different in what we read. You may stop reading it and check back in a month. Sure, it’s your choice.
    But beware of yawning. In some times and in some places, a yawn was the last thing a person did.

    “Holly needs ti get her spunkyness up and running,”
    The poor woman is sleep-deprived.

    Well, living in a bare surrounding for days without a meaningfull task can have such an effect on people. I don’t think it’s sleep deprivation, more likely sensor deprivation.

    And still, Allgood asks the wrong questions. Maybe someone should hand him a mirror.
    The change was radical, and so common ideas no longer apply. You can’t stay with humane standards anymore as all humanity, at least in appearance, is lost. Only the mental ideology is what’s left. So my comment, radical changes ask for radikal rethinking of one’s standard. Adapt or be extinct, but it’s not possible to uphold humane thoughts if your extincted.

    Hope this makes sense, it’s not easy to philosophize in a different language. Like building a small clockwork with a sledgehammer…

    No more aberrant than her being a cow in the first place. I wonder what panda-specific behaviors or physiological effects Mr. Allgood is ashamed to admit as aberrant but he has to do.

    I really can’t wait till they put Linda up there! I love Holly (who doesn’t?) But you have to admit Linda doesn’t put up with much crap. Its like: " I’m here I’m an anthro, I’ll deal with it, don’t make my life any more miserable or ill fight." You noticed she’s not losing it, tho I thought she would
