Notice how I am talking about Trouble as if it were a "he." It's not really a "he," is it? Or a "she" for that matter. Trouble is more of an impersonal entity, really. Like an evil spirit.
But sometimes it's easier for us to think about hard things if we make them more familiar. That's why we talk about Trouble as if it were a person. It helps us visualize. You can picture Trouble with long white fingers and hungry eyes parked and waiting across your street, watching from his car.
If that's what Trouble really were -- a person -- it would be easy. ABRAM THE SAFETY APE could just run across the street and drag Trouble out of that car and pound on Trouble till Trouble's nose is bleeding and he's promising to stay out of the neighborhood for good. SAFETY APE could just pound and pound till he hears those sirens coming.
But violence is not the answer, kids. Even if it happened to be, Trouble is not really a person, and Safety, also, is not really an ape. That's right, ABRAM THE SAFETY APE is just a representation, a picture image of something that exists on a higher spirit plane.
Am I blowing your minds yet?
