The Next Day
It felt good to release all that pent up frustration.To yell into the streets "I'm mad as hell,and I'm not going to
take it anymore!!!".It felt even better to hear all those other voices ,in the streets,yelling into the night those same words.
For once,I felt like I was not alone in this.For once I felt like there might be a change to change this situation our world had become.To keep this
momentum going,like a snowball rolling down a mountain ,growing and gaining speed.
Big enough and with enough force to actually mean something and get something done.
As we retired for the evening,I could barely sleep,the excitement of it all still racing through my veins,through every brain cell.
That next morning,with barely a few hours sleep,I drug myself out of bed,started a pot a coffee.I walked outside to get the paper,I took notice of the
hazy sunrise,poking through the still brown sky.My thoughts were,today is the day for change.
I got back upstairs ,poured myself a cup,made a bowl of cereal and proceeded to read the want ads.
The same as the day before and the day before that.
Same ol' pathetic jobs that I was either over qualified for or under qualified.
Today is the day for change ,I told myself.
As I moved on to the stories,across the front page the headlines were saying that riots were breaking out in various cities.
Another headline caught my eye saying that the newscaster I saw last night was jailed for inciting these riots.
YES,I thought,we will change this,I know it now.
I finished up my breakfast,did the dishes.I took a shower and got dressed.
Today was the day ,as each Tuesday,to make my way down to the unemployment office.
I left the small apartment,and headed down the street,noticing everything seemed eerily quiet.
As I made way down ,I noticed alot of noise ahead.As I approached closer,I could see police in full riot gear and alot of people chanting and
I got close enough to hear the crowds yelling,"I'm mad as hell and I"m not going to take it anymore!!"
Yes,I thought this is the beginning!!
I started to yell myself and everything went black........
I had been killed by a young rookie police officer.
Today had changed for me because now I was dead.
