For those who are new, Rochelle shares a photo prompt to which several #FridayFictioneers compose a 100-word flash of fiction. Come, it only hurts a little.
Here’s my contribution:
Conquering the Divide
What begins the falling rock?
This, a question for the specialists and doctorates, those over-educated, arrogant drains stockpiling mountains of books and degrees and stinking of supercilious pretension. They impose their view of superiority, concoct supporting proofs, prop others like themselves upon pedestals, then celebrate their self-creation and self-preservation.
Can they not see what their actions portend?
Can they not understand the divide they profess to be striving to eradicate is of their own convenient fabrication?
Here the impetus, Thomas Ward the rock, and society the hill down which Ward tumbles. Collecting, dismembering, depositing, he toils to close the gap.
