So with all of the paper tiger public enemies being put up round our neck of the woods in recent months (and years), I thought I would go for a little bit of dystopian fiction. Once again I’ve clocked in at 51 words, but I just couldn’t find a word I wanted to cull. Suggestions, as always, are welcome.
My contribution is titled…
A Public Information Notice From Your Government
Citizens are reminded that members of the never-were class have been retroactively dehumanised to maintain government-imposed peace.
Although never-weres may have been your spouse, child, parent or friend, government thought-monitors have detected anti-government sentiments within their private thoughts.
Citizens are reminded that harbouring a never-was carries a penalty of retroactive dehumanisation.
I’m looking forward to seeing your efforts this month! If you’re sharing on Twitter, don’t forget to use the hashtag #Fi50. For those who like to be prepared, next month’s prompt is…
Until next time,
