Moody Monday: Toxic -

"The Electric Chair"

I suppose it's just me, but I seem to be on somewhat of a morbid streak lately. Quite by accident, since I'm responding to other influences than just the work itself. Even so, the theme at Moody Monday this week has resulted in what I can only describe as a particularly dark bit of black humor. As usual, the concept, for me, addresses the subject matter on more than one level. The chair itself as a means of capital punishment; the mental state of the criminal before, during and after the fact; the victim himself or herself; even the state of the state as regards this form of punishment; all of these, correspondents with the theme - toxic.
