Battles Lost and Won

Another day, another few promises broken.
No one else knows this, though.

What others think, whether they're actually even paying attention or not... He's convinced it doesn't matter. But, if they were to all disappear... were truly gone, never to be seen or heard from again, would he still keep on this way?

That can never be known.

But, the rules are still worth following.

"Worth? If you don't believe there's meaning in anything, what does it mean to say this or that action has worth? You really are a silly creature, aren't you?"

"Not you again..."

"You won't be getting rid of me with a bottle of Ballantine's today."

"Alright, then. But, go easy on me; I'm having a rough patch."

"Dear boy, you know it's not in my nature to 'go easy on you.' In fact, if I did just that, I'd be as worthless as you."

"'Worthless' in the universal sense?"

"In whatever sense you like. Or don't like. It matters not."

"You've got a bit of a hostile tone today."

"Well, it's hard work trying to keep you in line... Think about it, I'm your salvation and your my ball and chain, as it were."

"Funny,... I usually think of you as my ball and chain..."
