AUTHOR AND SCULPTOR
How's this for prescience?
I started to put this - my latest project - together about 4 months ago - i.e. back in November of 2019 - and I finished it early last month and, lo and behold, look what's happened in the world since then!
A barrel of oil has plummeted in price and no-one knows how low it will go nor, even worse, what the ramifications will be.
Its title is - "STAY HOME AND MULTIPLY" and the need to build it came after reading in a newspaper that the number of royal princes in this particular country now exceeds 1,000!
QUERY - IS IT POSSIBLE FOR A COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST TO GO, IN 4
GENERATIONS, FROM RIDING CAMELS AND LIVING IN TENTS PITCHED ON SAND
TO RIDING IN MERCEDES AND LIVING IN PALACES WHILE PRODUCING - “ . . . . . .
OVER 1,000 ROYAL PRINCES" (AND, PRESUMABLY, THE SAME NUMBER
OF ROYAL PRINCESSES) BACK TO RIDING CAMELS ON, REGRETTABLY BUT
INEVITABLY, BREAKING-UP CONCRETE?
WHETHER THE COLLAPSE COMES FROM INTERNAL OR EXTERNAL STRIFE OR
FROM A LACK OF DEMAND FOR THE ONLY PRODUCT - OR FROM ALL 3 - IT’S NOW
PRETTY CERTAIN THAT IT WILL HAPPEN JUST AS IT DID IN ANOTHER COUNTRY,
THIS ONE IN SOUTH AMERICA THAT HAS THE LARGEST OIL RESERVES IN THE
ENTIRE WORLD (VERIFIED), THAT MANAGED TO REACH THAT GOAL IN BARELY 3
