Corruption

A VERBIS AD VERBERA

In a hellish carnival of social media platforms, virtual personas achieve godlike damnation. 

Black-On-Black Crime is a Myth
By Craig Davidson

A tired, bigotry-veiled argument is fittingly upended.

The Blood Flow Game
By Seamus Scanlon

The ruthless set the rules. The loser wins a hard truth. And no one cheats the grave.

By Seamus Scanlon

A theatrical and mischievous interplay between maleficent and beneficent forces. And the audience learns of its own complicity.
