He told her they’d been studying the man for years and they’d finally decided that eradication, not re-election, was the only reasonable response to his looney quest for leadership.
“But even then,” she asked, “how can you be sure he’s not the best candidate?”
He turned to her and said, “We look at him. Through the wrong end of the long telescope of Time, he does, indeed, seem so tiny; so foolish and harmless; so far away. But, these days, given the highly virulent history he’s already subjected us to… not far enough. There is no far that’s far enough”
Monday Prosery Challenge
~ Telescope Of Time ~
Kim’s hosting this week’s Prosery Challenge, which wants us to create a prose response of no more than 144 words, incorporating a sentence from the D.H. Lawrence poem, Humming Bird: ‘We look at him through the wrong end of the long telescope of Time’.
I broke and open-ended the sentence (which is allowed), but otherwise I’m playin by the rulz, I guess.
Looking forward to other fine responses.
