the gods in grey

outside the great hall, there is a statue of famous doc barn'ard, a worshiping place for my masters who have enforced bowing down to his knees whoever has to enter their cave. each day on my delivery trails with flasks and ointments, i pass by his stone face impending down on me, and i hurry along feeling a cold shiver of luck down my spine that me, i am uninjured, without pain, thriving of health.

the air filling the halls of munkee house is thick of strange odors, not all unpleasant, some rather spicy, but all of them speak about suffering, hope, despair and relief. the munkees, my masters, noiselessly pace from apothecary to infirmary, from operation theater to small private treatment chambers, where only the richest of the rich ever are carried into; nevertheless theirs screams can be heard as loud as those of the common folks treated outside.

this is a many's last stand, their final hope when things have gone from difficult to grave, from an annoying scratch to a pus-dripping wound. and my masters are reverend gods in gray coats, deciding whom gets to live and whom needs to die. there is plenty to learn about both here, and i am kept busy with charging from one to the other, delivery boy for drugs i don't understand, will they heal or destroy.

and for the first time, i feel i make sense.

Wonderful. I like the way you play with words changing them a bit but not to a totally unrecognizable way. Great post.
