Changing Venues

by M. J. Joachim

The noise in the waiting room was overwhelming. Patients happily chatted, as if the procedure was completely commonplace. Daily events were being discussed and future plans were being made.

Government leaders promised change. Citizens lined up in droves to receive their entitlements. They happily paid higher taxes for this privilege.

Government paid doctors performed the physicals and administered the shots. Each patient in turn became a blank slate, destined to be programmed and unleashed against each other.
