Microfiction – The Note

Whoever finds this note, what I tell you is the truth. So tell all who will listen.

In my time, many people foolishly voted for corrupt politicians hell-bent on destroying freedom for their own gain. And while others fought against them, there were not enough.

In the years following, all perished from wars and man-made disasters. All but one if this goes unread.

If it is read, I pray you are heard. Because I, too, found a note, but nobody listened.

Microfiction – Flip It

“Puppet, come in here. I have a job for you.”

“What is it, Sir?”

“I want you to have all the school kids sent home with a summer reading list that teaches racism. We need those little ones to hate each other based on a person’s skin color.”

“People of color have spent years fighting racism, Sir. The media will crucify us.”

“It won’t be a problem; the books teach kids how to be racist against whites.”
