107 Extracted Words – The Tease

July 2021

I write short fiction, flash fiction, essays and novels. This month’s Tease is from a work in progress.

The rich are the new nobility, wealth the new bloodline. No longer do we bow to the sovereign because their ancient family has passed on to them the tongs of power and torture. Now, any commoner need only to earn, inherit or steal wealth for the reverence to gush forth. (He’s rich so I figured he would make a good president. Sound familiar?) No longer does royalty need to be bestowed upon us by the gods, dropped to Earth like golden rays of divine sunshine. They only need to have a jet that flys just high enough to touch space and, of course, a really fat wallet.
