Sunday Writing Prompt — The Fists Began to Fly

“The problem is that his strategy all along was to do a snow job on the voters and now that he’s out of office, the snow he’s piled on will melt, and all the nut-brown mounds of shit he’s leaving behind will become visible,” Mick said.

“You’re wrong, Mick,” Jason said. “I’ve done a definitive analysis, and my concern lies in the blatant disregard of our government to address the critical needs of the citizens it’s supposed to serve.”

Mick got a smirk on his face. “Your conclusion, my friend,” he said, “is highly subjective. The blame lies in the president’s disregard for the rule of law and in the GOP’s failure check his abuse of power and to dissent to his outrageously corrupt acts.”

The tension in the room between the two friends was high. “It’s clear to me that our two minds are at loggerheads,” Jason said, “because of your ignorance.”

“And it’s clear to me,” Mick responded, “that you’re an asshole.”

That’s when the fists began to fly.
