A moment only lasting long enough to wreak massive cordial damage in the nefarious regions of cerebral motor-spatial co-ordiation disengaging from moral reasoning receptors in which the conventions set forth by society thrive. A break in the once impenetratable wall of silence, that which binds the clubhouse of nations to neo-monarchic ideals revolving on the Master and slave relationship (Who says relationships never last), to keep proles in line.
