Flash Fiction #217

Where are we going??

It is not wise to ask. We are going to have our identities removed.

What? Why??!

After the Holy Trump – Blessed be His Name – escaped the seditious impeachment trap set by his enemies, He appointed himself Emperor for Life and decreed that there would be no more division and dissent among his People.

His thoughts would be our thoughts. There would be no more Red States or Blues States, only Orange States, to worship his Divine Hair. Fake news was outlawed, climate change conspiracy was crushed, and He holds our Peace in His tiny manly hands.

  1. Interestingly but sadly, this is a perfect story to go with that picture. And it’s not out of the realm of possibility…

    We’re all riding the escalator to the Twilight Zone now. There are times I wake up in the morning and think it was all a nightmare… then he speaks and I just wish I lived in an alternate universe.

  4. A perfectly timed piece! Nice one.

    U.S. politics is now a form of reality TV, one nation divided under Trump, with justice and mercy for those He thinks deserve it.

      What’s your bet on a second term for him? I didn’t think the American public was dumb enough to elect him in the first place. I thought the masses would hold their nose and vote for Hillary. 😳

    Alas, this seems altogether too plausible.

    Unfortunately, this prophecy may hold true.

    Wonderful people. There is no need for identity we are great again.

    Fun and creative, even if our politics may not line up. I do try to avoid politics as a whole, as neither side is any good IMO.


    • Archon's Den says:

      I have no American politics either, except as what toxic waste may leak northward, across the Canadian border. I don’t worry about Trump in Dem. or Rep. terms, only psychological ones. 😯

    Your story was in the same vein as mine. Only Orange States — it could happen!
