Shadow Men In The Masonic Temple
by El Supremo
One Autumn night in the year 1972, I am out partying with some associates of mine when one of them offers me some LSD. Being no stranger to this hallucinogen. I injest it right on the spot and quickly return to my rented room on the near westside.
Being at the fragile age of 21, I was very unsure as to the direction I wanted my life to go. I had however noticed that every time I tried to make moves in any direction in life for some unknown reason I ran into insurmountable roadblocks.
When I settled down in my room and started to meditate on the possible reasons for my predicament, I heard a voice in my head answer the question I kept posing to myself. The question was; Why can't I succeed at anything I attempt to do? And the answer came; Because we will not let you.
At first I ignored this voice in my head and attributed it to the LSD, but then it repeated itself again so clearly that I just had to respond. To respond I just put forth a thouhgt like the orignal one that get attention.
After a while the entity as I will call it was telling me that they were the cause of most of my problems and that if I were brave enough to seek them they would lead me to them. They also said that at any time during my quest to reach them they may decide to kill me.
At that point I was so outraged that anyone would seek to control my life that I was ready to commit murder. I agreed to follow their telepathic leads to the place that they were at knowing full well in my heart that as soon as I got my hands on them I would kill them whether they be humans or even Gods.
They led me outside the house and down the street to the Detroit/Superior Bridge that spana the Cuyahoga River. As I was crossing the bridge, a srtong gust of wind almost blew me off the bridge at the mid-point. A fall that would have meant certain death. Then they spoke again saying "We could have killed you if we wanted. Do you still want know who we are"? "Yes", I answered. "Then by all means,proceed" they replied.
As I reached the end of the massive bridge I came apon an intersection. I waited for the light to change and proceeded to cross the street when all of a sudden everything started spinning, a result of the LSD kicking in again. I stood still in the middle of the street trying to keep my balance as cars spead by me just missing me. Again they spoke " We could run you over in the street, like a dog, if we choose. Do you still want to know who we are." "Yes", I proclaimed even though I was scared to death. "Then continue", they answered and I did.
By this time I was downtown and I proceeded to walk up the main street aways and all of a sudden I here a fire engine coming up the street from Public Square and it pulls over and parks about half a block up the street from me. Four firemen get out of this huge truck and line up alongside the storefront and stare at me in a most hateful manner. They then started cursing at me using the most vile words I could ever recall hearing. Finally they said so you think you want to know the truth, you cant handle the truth you faggot. They then started to spitting in my direction and as I looked into their eyes I noticed they had no color in them, they only had the whites of their eyeballs. These men looked to be in their 60's or 70's and their faces reminded me of demons as i thiught to myself "I must be in hell."
As I passed the firemen the entity spoke again saying "We're in the masonic temple." I ran the remaining two blocks to the masonic auditorium, a huge building and started to pounld on it's castle-like doors.
An elderly man slowly cracked open the huge doors and revealed himself to be wearing a red fez with a white tassle around his waist was an apron with symbols embroidered upon it.
