Freedom 2

In the center of our room.

A screen adorns the wall.

I press the button.

and the black flashes

multi-colored faces,

unknown to me.

Some looked worried.

Others in tears.

No smiles there.

A cavalcade of people,

bring me despair.

 

In the center of our room.

A screen adorns the wall.

I press the button again

Sounds of laughter

Multi-color outfits

Flashing teeth

Shining lights.

An unending stream

of soulless happenings

A cavalcade of people,

bring me exhaustion.

 

In the center of our room.

A screen adorns the wall.

I press the button once more

Grey suits sit

arranged around a table

Their voices talk and talk

but I don’t understand

I only hear a buzz

or a drone.

A cavalcade of people,

bring me blindness

 

In the center of the room.

A screen adorns the wall.

I press  the last time.

The colors went black.

This is freedom(?)

Freedom

“We’ll get rain today.”  Isaac said to his cat Myra.

As if to comply with his words drops started to fall.

There was a knock on the door.

Isaac placed Myra on the floor, got his rifle and opened the door.

An Asian man in a camouflage uniform but unarmed, smiled at him.

“Sir! I am here to inform you that we restored order!”

“I see.”  Isaac said.

“We also restored your constitution.”

“Constitution? Let me think..Ah…. I remember! It allowed us the use of firearms.”

“Indeed.  But we took that  part out. Your country broke down because everyone was eventually armed to the teeth. ”

“We see about that!” Isaac growled, “Nobody is going to tread on my constitutional rights!”

“I am sorry you feel that way, sir.” The Asian man hurried away.

A few minutes later two tanks rolled down the street and blew up Isaacs house.

Myra, being a cat,  had already fled.

“We get snow today.”  Isaac said to his cat Myra.

As if to comply with his words white flakes started to float downward.

There was a knock on the door.

Isaac placed Myra on the floor, got his rifle and opened the door.

A Chinese man in a camouflage uniform but unarmed, smiled at him.

“Sir! I am here to inform you that we restored order!”

“I see.”  Isaac said.

“We also restored your constitution.”

“Constitution? Let me think..Ah…. I remember! It allowed us the use of firearms.”

“Indeed.  But we took that  part out. Your country broke down because everyone was eventually armed to the teeth. .”

“We see about that!.” Isaac growled, “Nobody is going to tread on my constitutional rights!”

“I am sorry you feel that way, sir.” The Chinese man hurried away.

A few minutes later two tanks rolled down the street and blew up Isaacs house.

Myra, being a cat,  had already fled.
