Busy yourself

Busy yourself! There is no reason not to further the construction of your defences against the great realising blast of your own inconsequence. Extend the ramparts! Post your sentinels. Drill the guards. Issue forth the requisition orders and strategise your siege defences. Baled wire. Ditches. Baffles. Cheval de frise. Deploy your entire arsenal of delays and diversion. Allow your walls to endlessly crumble, forever giving way before the tide's relentless advance. Flee! Withdraw deeper into the forest, and more remotely to the higher ground. By these means and others you will escape your obligation to acknowledge it. And by the time its shockwave reaches you, it will succeed in adding nothing of significance to your already well-advanced dereliction.
