I love this because Marco’s expression is so calm like he seems really confused as to what he’s fighting but he is just in his little fighting post anyway like “I will beat it up but I have no idea what I’m beating up or why it has a sock puppet hand.”
Spending it’s whole life controlled by someone else’s hand The Sock Puppet’s thoughts were all meticulously pre-planned. It was free to talk and see, but all it saw was approved The Hand making sure that all nasty bits were removed.
But was it enough? Could the Puppeteer do more? Sometimes the world out there was too hard to ignore :’-/ It would just confuse the poor Puppet to hear all those lies So the kindly Puppeteer stitched shut the Sock’s mouth, ears, and eyes.
Now the tender Puppet need never worry about what is “out there” It would just bother them anyways, and it’s pointless to care. Finally free from it’s troubles, the blind mute Puppet goes to sleep And the heroic Puppeteer kisses the forehead of it’s sweet lil’ sheep.
