Walking uphill trying to get down
Prominent ghost town litigate battle pitch darkness
Aesop is creating a juxtaposition here.
Two contradictory situations that will never be over. Walking uphill will never get you down.
As a ghost town pitch darkness is inevitable. It represents the consequences of the “darker side of life”.
