All Hail! – A Sarcastic Right Wing Mini-Rant (you have been warned)

He was regaled as being
a generous and wise ruler,
allowing the most energetic
and creative of his subjects
to keep almost half of their
earnings. The rest he gave,
minus his own share, to the
unfortunate, to be fair.
“What could be more just?” the
sycophants would say.
“We only penalize those
that produce.”

Three Word Wednesday asked us to use Generous, Just and Penalize. Yes, I am in a mood.

  1. The words are well-used here, Mark. Seamless.

    1) Ha! nice ending.

    2) In this line “What could more just,” you left out the word “be.”

    3) Would that all rants were expressed in miniature form. 😉

    4) I’m going to require you to come read my asylum poem because I fear no one else will get it:

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
