Tragedy of Apathy

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, Comedy of Errors

It’s 2022
It true
But still
There’s a madman
With his finger on the button

Our zenith has passed
We missed the chance
To progress beyond
Our nature

OK – nothing to do with the prompt really – apart from that’s all that came to mind when I read it.

Owners Guide to Cattle

Keep them on the verge
Of being panicked
Keep them unsure
And afraid
Whip them into a frenzy
Then collect the coin they make
Prod them where you need them to go

Scott’s Daily Prompt 27/02/2022

Today’s prompt is. Comedy of errors

Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did — fiction encouraged here, too!
Bonus assignment: do you keep a notebook next to your bed? Good. Tomorrow morning, jot down the first thought you have upon waking, whether or not it’s coherent.
