Ryan’s Serpens Lacum (Snake Pit)

They spread a net for my feet-- I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path-- but they have fallen into it themselves. 

It has been said in so many terms when someone digs or creates a pit, he himself may fall into it but falling into it is only half of the misfortune as he who falls into the deepness is also bitten by the serpent that awaits him down below. So it tells the story of those who abuse and corrupt the minds of others as they bask in the glory of evilness and darkness. 

The state of affairs are in disarrangement and confusion. There is no organization and certainly the culture has spiraled downward into different stages of panic and disorder. This mess will never be put back in order as the abyss is so deep and so dark there is no light and unknowing, there is not bottom to this pit created by exploitation and control from within and without regard for human dignity or value. 

Looking around you will see all things once living slowly dying. Crawling out of the pit is necessary for one to see the evilness of such a place and how it is a free for all place of havoc, pain and sorrow. Staying out of the pit offers even a bigger challenge as the obstacles are numerous and the pressures unyielding strong. 

Tumbling downward and recognizing the lawlessness that surrounds you, you hope and pray the end is near as the suffering is unforgiving and the mess is cluttered with a medley of blood and violence. There is no sign of light and no ray of hope as the walls seem to crumble and close in on you forever. 

There is no plan, no pattern or no order. The chaos was designed out of carelessness and storm created thinking that dwelled on lessons learned and hodgepodge thinking that if they react and recreate these problems they will solve themselves with time and ignorance. 

Never has mankind failed so many and the world will not pay attention until the end is near.
So this motley crew lead by Ryan wanders endlessly waiting for that moment in the journey where they all fall into the pit designed by them but dug by others as they knew that karma would end it all by allowing nature to take its course and cause these misfits to fall into the pit filled with serpents and fanged creatures filled with stronger and more deadly venom than each who fall possessed on their own.
