This poem is pretty straightforward, just super weird. Roland is traveling across a barren, lifeless plain that's basically hell. Except sometimes there's a horse.
Since I'm at a loss for something to talk about, I feel like I should mention my Patreon here. I don't wanna sound like a pitchman, but it's worth noting that you can read Lit Brick strips way early if your support me with at least $5. It's fun, and I would be very grateful.
