There once was a serpent
Who only traveled one direction: always forward, never backward.
Until one day the serpent came upon a demon.
The demon cursed the serpent, driving him insane—
Causing him to eat his own tail.
The serpent was blind.
But there were those who could see;
Who knew the serpent’s true path.
So they created a weapon to destroy the demon.
They hid the weapon in the snake’s den, where he waited for his madness to end…
But it never did.
For the seers discovered that the only one who could wield the weapon was the demon itself,
And so the serpent was doomed to circle in madness. Forever.
