Jordan Battles the Omnipresent Rats

Written By Nick Mendez | Aug 16, 2016

When a neighbor’s slip in sanity turns Jordan’s neighborhood into a bustling rat metropolis, he’s forced to confront the beasts head on–along with his feelings on the sanctity of life itself.

Years removed from his very first rock show, Jordan’s knowledge of rats (informed mostly by urban folklore and minstrel songs from the middle ages) is stretched to its limits. Would symbolic warnings scare them off? What are their movement patterns in the dead of night? How do they grow to such a boorish size?

When the local authorities offer little assistance, Jordan is forced to take matters into his own hands. The result is a man nearly driven mad by inter-species combat.

One can only hope that the rats remember Jordan the way he remembers them–as a fierce adversary deserving solemn respect.
