Exiles from a dysfunctional global pipe-dream of borderless corporate matriarchies, multi-kulti nonsense and data-driven diversity where virtue-signaling despots ruled and those so confused they didn't know their own gender competed for victim-status as they shrieked, where rainbow torches on the filthy walls smoldered with toxic smoke barely illuminating the fragments of computer carcasses we had to step over, we fled the oppression of passive-aggressive elitists suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome to found a pure republic, based on poetry, goodwill and faith in God. We emerged from the labyrinthine caverns and malodorous tunnels into the light right outside the cave: Clear, strong patriarchal light purifying the fresh air.
We breathe deeply.
Once I saw some Vikings sail the sea looking for Diet Coke only to find angry gulls and mothers squawking in parking lots as the dust of the gentle hills disappeared down the unpaved road of rolling Scandinavian seas.
I was emotionally engaged once . . . but she was a neurotic feminist poet, so I broke it off and moved to Kekistan where (thanks be to Kek) I married my TWO Kekistani brides.
PROMPT #11: Where are you from? Not just geographically, but emotionally, physically, spiritually? Maybe you are from Vikings and the sea and diet coke and angry gulls in parking lots. Maybe you are from gentle hills and angry mothers and dust disappearing down an unpaved road. And having come from there, where are you now?
