'Season's Greetings' From Ferguson, MO.

Post by JasonMott » Mon Dec 01, 2014 9:29 pm

Tear gas fills the air, and protesters fill the streets. They cry out for justice, while victimizing their neighbors, and breaking the law.

Candlelight vigils devolve into full-scale riots, as those who've lost a loved one stoke the flames with vitriol.

Talking heads spew rhetoric, and personal agendas on the boob tube, while blood is spilled by those listening to them.

They dance around the flaming wreckage of what was once a small bakery, and beat an old man to death, while claiming that they are the real victims.

The 'Racial Divide' has become impassable, and no one cares.

This is why I love speculative fiction.

I guess there's no accounting for perspective, eh?

To the Up, everything is down
To the Down, it's all up
And to the Near
It's all lost where the lines converge
