Nightmare

Taking liberties with the format, a little piece of 100 word flash ‘fiction,’ especially for today:

“It’s April 1 2020. The news is worrying. The UK General election is coming fast, and the country is veering towards a post-Brexit win for Nigel Farage’s renamed UK National Socialist Party. President Trump has just declared war on Mexico for its continuing refusal to pay for his wall, and has threatened Scotland with armed retaliation for the nationalisation of his golf course. President Putin and Wendy Deng now control her ex-husband’s media empire: their newspaper, Pravda of London, has begun circulating.

Am I dreaming? Is this real? A bad April Fool’s Day joke? Or is the world really stumbling towards oblivion?”

Far-fetched? I hope so, but there is so much happening now that makes me worried about our future. I hope I’m wrong! Happy April Fool’s Day!

    It seems an appropriate time to revisit this brief piece that I wrote two months ago. The Nightmare is beginning. We have voted to destroy our country and to seriously damage future European unity.

    Today, I’m ashamed to be British.

    • I know they play a role, Diane, but in Trump’s case he has said so many things directly to camera that no presentation is needed! I really hope my nightmare view doesn’t come any closer too 🙂
