Lost in the Twilight Zone Marathon | Ep 14 | Thoughts and Prayers

Recent events have reminded me of a little work of fiction I wrote that was meant to be dystopian. With each new day, it feels more real, less imaginary. When will enough be enough? I woke up tears this morning. How about you?

Lovely Curses

After thoughts and prayers didn’t work, the state decreed the nonexistence of God. As proof, they declared terrorism no longer a threat. “For what god do you strap a bomb on your chest and take the lives of the innocent and able-bodied?” The Cross-bearing political zealots accepted this, not realizing their God too was rendered an anachronism, and they were swiftly liquidated for their attempts to merge church and state.

    Not that I’m suggesting any sort of profiling is appropriate because we all know that pathetic fucking lunatics come in all shapes and sizes and, in certain parts of the world, are legally entitled to get their hands on a weapon specifically designed to kill people in wars,
