Strange and Lonely People - 6. Rodney from Restart



No doubt after countless years bucking the system, the time comes when he swallows his pride and takes a position with the employment services. None of his co-workers would like Iron Maiden anyway, so he keeps it to himself, in his eyes they are the same as he is. Outsiders.

Strange and Lonely People - 5. A Solitary Proclaimer in the Seven Eleven




I saw a solitary Proclaimer browsing in the Seven Eleven on North Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago, it may have been the day they were playing. Not a Strange sight, but oddly lonely for a twin to be on his own.

Strange and Lonely People - 4. The Crying Nun

It's just some days are like this.....

Perhaps further enquiries would reveal he's been a naughty boy?

Strange and Lonely People - 2. No More Clowning Around



Fed up of ending the day with a face smeared of thick and shiny greasepaint clogging the pores and when the collapsing car has run out of M.O.T's, the clown hangs up his painted smile and removes his red nose for the last time. Time to get serious. No more clowning around.

Strange and Lonely People - 1 . The Aged Waiter.
