NanoWriMo 2013: 20

Nowadays, everywhere you look, there are Oppressive Structures lining the roads.

They didn’t used to be there. Something else was. Housing, a school maybe. A field even. Nature, trees, space to play football, run, walk, make love, bury your dead. Then the shopping malls, the parking garages, the fast food joints, one after another, the second one closes another rises up in its place like a sick, twisted corporate hydra made of minimum wages, carbs and sodium.

We used to have a planet. They took it from us.

Any wonder why I welcomed the new otherworldly visitors with open arms? Anything was better than what we had… and the Oppressive Structures, the ones Humanity made, are another way of saying “Never again.”
