We must beware Jeremy. Jeremy is the unknowing afflicted. Others may be to some degree but none so severely as Jeremy.

No allegiance, no state, he’s the alien at the terminal.

He spends his days writing precise, beautiful things but he cares nothing about them. His words are as caltrops.

When in a paroxysm of dispassion, he thinks he’s better than us. Residing between us he truly lives only in apathy.

Plays at love but he’s only interested in horizons, love ought flesh him but it only made him significantly colder.

We must beware Jeremy, he advertises at us always.

    I had to look up the word 'caltrops.' Interesting image!
    I grapple with his identity. He goes by other names.
    Good one!

    As someone who writes advertising for a living, I can confirm this is 100% accurate.

    Yes, he does.
    And I really - especially after your warning - am going to try to beware ... best I can.
