We are each our own devil, and we make this world our hell. ― Oscar Wilde

WHEN THIS WORLD CATCHES FIRE
BOOK THREE: SAVAGE NOXTOWN
CHAPTER NINE: PART ELEVEN: THE MAYOR OF HELL

“Let me tell you more about the invisible world, Yob,” said Doc
Ketman to the young Cadger Tandy (who was but yet a broth of a boy,
although he told the tale some fifty years later). “All the talk about
ghosts and fairies and the unseen and the unheard-of, it all comes
from somewhere, and I don’t think it’s being imagined because I’ve
seen it with my own two eyes, I have. You’re mean to me, you are, if
ye dismiss what I have to say as the ravings of an old charlatan.
May the devil choke me old gob if what I say be not so. For
wasn’t I there at the grand conclave, and all but hidden behind the
curtain, when the seventy-odd demons who run this town did gather?
Wasn’t I there to hear the sound of all the great beasts speaking
backwards and turning the air blue with their vile curses and
profanations? It was right here at the docks, at the old shore hall–
you know the place I mean–the low rafters hung full
with old bait and tackle and the hall crammed full of
picnic tables and flimsy wooden chairs where the fat asses all lounged
over their food and drink, and a sorry and demonic lot they were. You
could head their barking and their grunting haw haw and their
high-spirited helloas as they echoed from the high roof of the
whitewashed shanty.”

“You ever have a set of chores to do, the thought of which kept you
from sleeping at night and leaves you with a pitfall in the depths of
your guts? Sure and maybe leaves you all twisted up in your bed sheets, longing
for a deep rest that never comes, until the bright light of day and
the bustle of the people next door jostle you from your repose? (I go
before another court–I tie up my 77-fold fits.) Maybe not, for you’re
about yae too young. Let me tell you this–the sight of that bunch of
rogues who were all assembled to carve up the town between them left
me with a pounding pain to the head and a feeling of seasickness on
dry land. I tried to remember as many details as I could, but after it
happened it all seemed very much like a bad dream, and I had to
question to myself whether any of it really happened at all.”

“The docks are a savage and demoniac place, and for a number of
reasons, chief amongst which are the following facts: That waterways
are expressways for evil between light and dark, good and evil, living
and dead. That bad things happen near bodies of water, which are
conducive to evil. Spiritual bodies, both good and bad, will gravitate
to water, but in a place of great wickedness, such as Noxtown, the bad
drives out the good. Evil practices and iniquitous deeds such as are never
mentioned by name in the Bible, but the docks are where all the bad people go
to indulge themselves in defying The Word of the Lord by indulging in
card-parties, picnics, fairs, shows and theaters and other forms of
revelry and rioting. Demons do not love God, ner Heaven, for they love not His
angels, and they have forever forfeited Heaven. All the associated
worldly pleasures such as whisky, morphine, wild women, and secret
vices all prove that these demons do not love God and would rather
roister and revel in their earthy vices. Demons love not God; for they
are Demons, some of whom abide on the earth as half human beings like
The Big Man, Cokey Stolas.”

“I am right and I will be proven right, come the Day of Judgment. As
the Good Book says, ‘Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and
pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.'”
That’s One Peter 2:11. Yea, you can’t come over Pontio; Pontio is above Pilato.

“You’ve heard of a Familiar, Yob? I told you before that Stolas is a
demon and you should have seen him there at the shore hall on the
night of Lammas, August first. It was in the closing days of the
Spanish American War with the canned bully beef and the Yellow Fever
killing more men than Spanish bullets ever did. Some say it was all the doing
of the Cuban Yoruba Witch Doctors. I don’t even like to name their
names, lest evil betide me for even so much as presuming to mention
them, let alone summon them. They are demons who have fallen from
heaven but have not yet landed in hell, and they walk the earth.”
