Another job... another few cents. ARGH!
This short-short was written for an assignment for my Uni studies but ended up being a reflection of my working life! LOL

Mediocre Utopia


I am defective and though they will attempt to repair me, I am beyond their mechanics. Every day is the same and I shall be punished for expecting difference. Schedule is vital, adherence is imperative, obedience… is natural. My position in this existence was determined at birth. Simple genetics marked me as a threat that must be controlled. Intelligence is a fault in design that they will eradicate through invisible chains and ghost whips. They are afraid of my potential.

I must be careful for any indication of dexterity is a beacon for their beatings and belittlement. For today, I follow the chosen path - the one chosen for me by those who believe in their own omniscience. Brilliant light fills the densely populated room with a false promise of warmth as I sit obediently and adhere to my schedule. I do nothing new. I do nothing exciting. I just do. For now.

My obedience is to the Authority. Her questions must be answered quickly and without thought for thought is the mother of opinion and such shall not be tolerated in an existence where the only goal is to smother hope and destroy individuality.

But this is not my World, only my existence. I wait for another to take their opportunity as they wait for me to seize mine. A leader is necessary. One shall break first and we shall all gather to fight back. I know it is I that is destined to lead.

One day.

Thank you very much for all your great comments. I joined Wikinut quite a while ago and forgot about it until last week. I'm glad I re-found it :)
