The Antagonist - Spartacus

 

Burning Bridge

I'm not very good at kissing and making up, forgiving and forgetting, letting bye-gones be bye-gones, turning a blind eye, accepting what is, denying what is, compromising values, sleeping with the enemy, tolerating the intollerable nor second chances. I'm a perfect candidate for systematic bridge burning. And so it is, I have been the engineer of some spectacular blazes, and thorough too, ensuring that with every bridge burned, a tunnel has been bored!
