Default We will always have had Paris


A.I. androids squat
in circles around
clusters of iPhones
that show images of
burning logs

Bytes of your
spirit/mind/soul
have been embedded
in their memories

The underground
teched up troglodyte
communities continue
building them (the A.I.s)
and sending them topside

The rad count data is
relayed from Earth's
Nuclear scorched surface
into the planet's bowels

There is no talk of who won
or lost the war

There have been no governments,
no countries
for hundreds of years

We simply lap the moisture
from the cavern walls
chew mushrooms and hope

Hope our bones are not the next
for the soup
cauldron


Yeah, we're usin' coal for
heat

Go ahead, report us

Current topical commentary, Nick?

Yeah, Pierce.
Somethin' to pass the time while waiting to see who moves to the head of the line now that that Griffin girl is history.

Nick, are there puns in that response?

Chuckle if you see 'em, Mr. P.

There is nothing special about Paris, Texas. Been there.
