The Perpetual Story

by George Korein and the Spleen

supported by


Analogues, iterations to infinity
Moratorium on the deconstruction of tropes
Palette-swaps into perpetuity
Believe in the attributes of properties

Character, setting, story, cyclically created
Reboot or new echo, most mutations don’t make it
Adapt or extrapolate for each generation
Public will test the pantheon’s plasticity

Then, one day, calamity
Well ran dry at the fantasy factory
You have been chosen, our only hope
Follow the dream, find the fuel

Quest across the swamps of genre
Ford the river of stygian Retcon
Take the flight, the flight of fancy
Defeat the nemesis against no odds

You’re a hero, an inspiration
What’s more, what’s less, You’re the latest variation
In the saga that sprawls in perpetual spiral
Chosen to follow the dream and exude the platitude

Manifest the moral of the parable
As you traverse the multiverse to break the curse
Collecting easter eggs and giving fan service
Pace your decompression as you re-emerge
