Captains log

Captains log..
Turns out we missed the rhapsody.
It came and went and all the good people are gone. We didn’t even notice.
Most are ignorant of this simply because they believe they are good therefore the rhapsody is yet to occur.
I met a man raving by the river that disturbed me deeply.
He stood upon a pile covered with a tarpaulin shouting at the river before promptly drowning himself.
As I tried to rescue him a facsimile arrived and helped me pull out the body of his doppelgänger. He then pulled back the tarpaulin to reveal the bodies of more copies and threw the most recent on top.
He thanked me curtly, climbed the pile and began once again to harangue the river.
End transmission.
