counter-revolution

Sally and Billy loved NPR. They loved Barack Obama and Mother Earth. They didn’t know about the war. It had started flaring up all around the country. The media were told to not cover it by the White House.

Billy first noticed that the Obama bumper sticker on his car was covered with a new decal. It was some sort of symbol. He thought it was a gang sign not knowing the Gadsden Flag.

Now the gun fire surrounding their neighborhood awoke them to the fact that a battle was being waged. Rifle rounds started coming through the walls of the little Green house made from recycled waste. They had no weapons and didn’t even know to get down on the floor. The two lovers and part time revolutionaries were fatally wounded. As they lay dying they asked each other “Why?”

A man walked into the house. “Why did you do this?” they asked him.

The man had no answer for them. He and his friends had all lost their jobs one year earlier. The plant they worked at was regulated out of existence. The boss, a good man they all thought, had to close the plant because a protected species (the Yellow Sissy Spider of the South-West) was being harmed by the men walking in and out of their jobs.

The Boss had to pay for his wife’s cancer treatment (in Canada, Obama Care was a death sentence) so he had to sell the property because he couldn’t make any profit after tending to the spiders (They needed organic sanctuaries where they could lay their eggs unmolested by men earning an honest living), and ten thousand other regulations.

The men sat around also asking “Why?”

“Before Obama’s Third Term,“ one man said, “we had Free Thinkers on the radio.”

“They used to warn us, and remind us, about (he lowered his voice) communism.”(a word that had been banned for years.)

No one really knew what it meant anymore. But the men all seemed to think that it was reason they were cold and hungry all the time. Watching their families suffer was too much to bear. They had to take action against communism. They had to defeat it and regain what they had before it ruled over them.

All the man could say to the dying couple was “communism.”
