For a week now my routine has been the same. I can’t leave. My girlfriend left, said something about freeing herself. I think it called out to her in her dreams. I don’t know. I don’t care. Every morning this week has been the same. Brew a pot of coffee, make some toast, curse that I only bought one loaf, and watch civilization collapse.
Massive wheels dominate my home’s skyline. Every few hours there’s a ‘piff’ noise as one of the numerous wheels spits out a disc. Sometimes it hits a man. The streets are covered in blood, gore, and bone, from men either ignorant or foolish. Some wanted to save their spouses. Some thought they could get food. All are dead.
Women? Different noise. A metal clink audible up here, from thirteen stories up and three blocks away, as a chain shoots out of the hole in the wheel. Some of the women run. Most, especially democrats, embrace the chain. They’re snapped up into the sky like fish. Unlucky ones have their necks broken. It doesn’t kill them, they just flop around on these chains.
One of these wheels is outside my window today. Banging against my window, rattling its harvest to entice me outside. I recognize my girlfriend. The chain cut deep into her throat, spilled her blood over her favorite black dress. She’s still talking though, moaning with the other women. “Pig. Misogynist. Patriarchy.” A few try and get me out by showing a calf muscle or two, but I’m not stupid.
It is pointless though. They’re everywhere now. Yesterday congress, trapped since approving this god forsaken plan, apologized. They said goodbye to their families. They apologized again. They drank something rancid looking and went to sleep. Ramirez had come with an assault rifle to the congressional session to save everyone. He had arrived to late. Now he was stepping over these sleeping old men, putting a round into their heads. He didn’t have enough ammunition. He beat Bernie Sanders to death with the butt of his rifle before choking himself to death with the horrid bill.
I heard when Obama signed the bill into law with his own blood his head snapped off of his body. Just stretched out like silly string before snapping off and floating away. I wasn’t watching. I was too busy enjoying free birth control. What a god damn fool I was.
