Anniversary #2

by

The Third Estate of Washington D.C received a letter a little past noon. The carrier carefully inspected the envelope, before handing it to the proper channels.

Slowly the letter worked its way up into the hands of the Founding Father. Inside was simply the word "Democracy" and, a picture of green woman weeping over the ashes of former skyscrapers cradled in her arms.

Perplexed, for the concept and the word had long since died out, he summoned Pan-America's great scholars to decode the message.

They came up empty handed; the King order all who'd seen it executed.

Blessed ignorance.
