X Files Parody Ends Chapter Crossing Czech to Slovakia with Epic Episode

Today’s final episode of Chapter 3 crosses the border from the Czech Republic to Slovakia, and was inspired by reading Isabel Kuhl’s Andy Warhol biography, and discovering he’d written a satirical cookery book called Wild Raspberries. Moreover, as this episode ends the chapter in Slovakia, there was a strange discovery worthy of an X Files parody, as I read on Wikipedia that Warhol’s parents were from Slovakia’s Mikova.

This episode contains heaps of poetry, lots of prose, and a few spoons of comedy.

Chapter 3 Episode 24

Humanity is distraction, raspberry for action, Wolfhol gets reaction.

I woke up with the above thoughts in my mind, having had a restless night’s sleep.

It was the last episode of the chapter,
and we were heading to Slovakia.

To death I didn’t think,
to life I couldn’t sink,
to live like a human,
with all that consuming,
the distortion entailed,
healthy aura paled,
no more green and yellow,
just grey plain and fallow,
blow a raspberry to it all,
did I just hear Wolfhol’s call?

Slovakian Raspberry Ripple

I woke up with a berry feeling the like of which I had not known since the Grey part of me passed through Canberra on its epic ramble across all regions of Oz.

When the others arose I told them of raspberries rippling through my dream consciousness. I told them it could be a message, as we were about to enter Slovakia, to complete the third chapter, and I had a feeling something exciting was about to happen.

‘Let’s get going then,’ said Jack,
‘there’s no point holding back
I’m the death
your last breath
of indecision
poetic precision
cutting through you like a knife
helping out your inner strife
so raspberries it is
forget all that sparkly fizz
good old fashioned berries
loved by wandering wereies.’

Slovakia Molecular

Make over to the east
for a rollicking raspberry feast
I thought I heard my dream echo
so we set off the next seco
‘What do you call air-conditioning for moles?’
asked Love, our one of them mixed-up voles
‘I don’t know,’ said Jack and I,
‘What do you call air-conditioning for moles?’
‘molecular,’ replied Love, ‘mole cooler mixed with molecule science, do you get it?’
We all laughed, getting it after a little time with the explanation.

Oh yes, travelling Slovakian roads is something to savour
providing some of the fun of life on the ocean wave
if you have a right royal company all merry
and lovely jokes on the way to promises of raspberry.

Raspberries Ahoy, Andy Parody Ploy

Oh yes, travelling Slovakian roads is something to savour
providing some of the fun of life on the ocean wave
if you have a right royal company all merry
and lovely jokes on the way to promises of raspberry.

It wasn’t long before Jack spotted a field full of raspberries. We looked for our Andy Wolfhol amongst them, but unfortunately couldn’t see him anyway.

So we started tucking into the raspberries. They tasted so delicious we just kept on tucking in… until we couldn’t tuck our bellies in!

We relaxed back among the remaining raspberries
feeling like flowers festooned with fairies
when I saw someone approaching our way
could it be an original Wolfhol artistic display
No, I recognised her straightaway when she laughed
it was the original one and only Mary Werewolfstonecraft
our satirical comedy philosophy correspondent
based on original liberal feminist Mary Wollstonecraft
‘I’ve come here to give you a message,’ she intoned,
‘I read yesterday that Andy Warhol’s ancestral home
was in Mikova
here in Slovakia
have you been
and Wolfhol seen?’
‘No,’ I replied, ‘for I did not know about Mikova
although this morning I thought I heard ‘Make Over’
so maybe it was a message I misheard
mistranslating into English a Slovakian word.
I also thought raspberries offered a clue
so we set off in search of where they grew
we found this fantastic field
with a red ripe raspberry yield
only there was no sign of Wolfhol
and it seemed another missed call.
‘That’s funny,’ said Mary’s voice on the breeze
‘for there was a book about Wild Raspberries
by Andy Warhol the artist cook
but it was really a satirical book.
Mikova’s back farther west in Slovakia
and it’s time to cross the border
as this episode is already stretched too far
pulled by Chapter 4’s gravity like a fading star.’
