is a vast and Byzantine bureaucracy, its geography similar to
that of the world we know and live in. For every crown prince
of hell, slavering over the Hitler's, Stalin's and butchers of
history, for every fallen angel that dreams of storming in vengeance
against Heaven and God, there is another lesser creature: a slave,
a servant, a being whose entire existence is the endless repetitive
drudgery of hell.
above the mindless drones that perform bone-crushing and thankless

snacking on a handful of peanuts; the guy whose single greatest
joy in the world is bringing you the cup of coffee you've waited
over an hour for, just a little too cold, and a touch too bitter.

years of seniority.
