As the fish rots from the head,
All sanity and decency is dead.
It was an interesting experience for me to pour ugly thoughts into something that is still appealing to me artistically. I have always been drawn to express the beauty I see in things. This, was very different.
The phrase "as the fish rots from the head down" caught my attention late in 2017. Its origins are disputed, but there is no doubt the expression has been around for centuries. These few words perfectly encapsulate the root of the distressing events being piled on since January 20, 2017.
