“Miserable me. Two planks are screwed onto my temples,” Franz thought. You can unscrew them, but stupid thoughts will immediately drag you into a dark abyss, right into the clutches of evil justice as a sentence to be served in a form of everlasting insomnia.

Yet, it's you on the back of a bug, that’s rushing across a field through eyeballs dug into the ground.
