Eating Scrolls for Breakfast

by

As the empire puts the crooks and destroyers of Earth in cabinet positions, and the robots in suits steal from the poor to give to the rich, and the maniacs in power can’t seem to find the eight trillion dollars the Pentagon spent on who knows what, but they need more to protect our freedoms…

The hard part at times is learning how to live with a new freedom, new agency, new choices that are ours to make and not made for us.
