It was the new normal.
All public transport ceased to operate at sunset.
Roads, trains, shops, offices were empty, save for the few….
or the Mad.
There was no-one to stop them, no law enforcement, no discipline, no containment.
They could do as they wished, take what they wanted. The world was theirs from sunset to dawn, a compromise by the powers that be for equality and acceptance.
Enter it at your peril.
Soon it would not be enough, and they would want it all.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Ooh, very apocalyptical. I hope it isn’t a vision of the future.

    Dark though it is, you express the threat brilliantly.
