Originally performed by a man, but this is open gender.
Goodbye art. You fickle mistress. You whimsical bitch who has taken my all from me and given me less.
I have sacrificed countless hours upon your altar. I have mined your caves of colour. I have sung your songs and slumbered in your silence. I have trudged through the fields of your influence and danced in the shadows of success without tasting the peaks of your promise. I have starved for guidance and feasted on the famine that you have so generously bestowed upon me.
