Science Flash (In the Pan) Fiction (Only It's True)



I tried my best to keep things the way they were so the children would have the same top-consumer lifestyle we'd all had after reforming ourselves from being stupid hippies & becoming even more materialistic (what else is there?) than our grandparents & parents.-------But I failed. Not enough of us voted. Not enough of us demanded change more quickly from all the things we didn't need that turned our planet into a deadly-hot, firey inferno, not fit for any living person, plant or animal. Greta Thunberg's blood is on my hands, & yours, as is the blood of every child & adult that followed her passionately. They had to release a debilitating virus on the entire planet right after she made it to the cover of Time Magazine, just to stop her, to preserve the Fortune 500. Now Wall Street stands silent, as do the wastelands of forests, jungles, mountains & oceans.

  1. during the Covid i had to change how i looked at a great many things and this goes for writing and reading as well. this is more than stream of consciousness it is a very good representation of the chaos we all have had to live with.

    1. thank you for visiting our journal. i will give the benefit that your english is not the best and you are not intending on anything but praising the writer. Nevertheless i feel i must remind your this is a literary journal; not a dating site and i must ask you comment on the work and not the woman. Respectfully, MAR.

  3. Nice we can still live in a day where fighting over a pretty woman is permitted. However; i am forced to agree with the editor that this journal's job is to present art to a confused world. Young lady, i like your style and hope to see more of it.
