Political Satire, but, What if, or ‘Why not?’

[thoughts from    ~burning woman~    by Sha’Tara]

The creature I am about to describe here has earned itself many sobriquets over the recent years, months, even days and some are getting quite exotic. A few: (borrowed from  https://wolfessblog.wordpress.com/2018/12/12/to-the-end-of-the-loud-illiterate-pretender/

prictator, orangubrat, trumptard, dolt45, trumpussy, and my favourites, presidunce and Agolf Twitler. This set me to thinking about a fitting end to its presiduncy.

In a normal country (don’t worry, there aren’t any of these on this planet) the creature mentioned above, and I have to assume ya-all know by now what that is, wouldn’t be jailed, that’s too normal. Try to imagine the damage it could cause in a real people jail. I know that people in America seem quite unconcerned about the treatment of prisoners in the nation’s endless jail but there has to be a limit as to what helpless prisoners are exposed to.

No, definitely not a jail. It would be put in a zoo designed especially just for it.

The layout of the main retention area would be shaped like the oval office, naturally, we want it to believe it is still in its natural habitat after all.

McDooDoo and KFC would get the contracts to keep the creature fed.

It would be given a sturdy fake cell phone with tones on the buttons and a slobber-proof light-up screen so it could tweet at night.

It would be given stacks of monopoly money to fondle and some tough rubbery human-like dolls, child size and adult, with various coloration of non-white skin-like coverings so it could thrash them about when in a rage. It would also be given an over-sized golf driver to smash up the figures.  Part of the entertainment at this stage would be to hear its wild screams of, “Terrorist!  Rapist! Murderer! Fake refugee! Liar, Thief!”

There would, of course, be a large mud bath where it could go to cool off from the blistering sun where it would repeat some simple mantras like: “Climate change is fake news, fake news, fake news!!!!!” “MAGA, MAGA, MAGA, MAGA!!!!!” “Coal, coal, coal, oh so beautiful coal!!!!!” “Biggly, biggly, biggly, want more food!!!!!”

Near the visitor fence there would be a fake computer stand with a fake Mensa testing board that would ding loudly each time the creature pressed the very large, orange, *1000 POINTS!* button, at which in predictable Pavlovian response it would run to a small trap door where the big mac, large fries, Coke and fried chicken would appear to be ravenously gulped down .

Of the containment fencing, the south fence would be turned into a solid cement wall with these words engraved in it: “Mexico on the Other Side.” To drive the creature crazy (and for the additional entertainment value) there would be a hole in the wall just big enough to allow a human to crawl through and nothing available to plug the hole.

To keep the creature totally happy, if not deliriously so, there would be a full-sized mirror with the words in fake gold on top: PRESIDUNCE AGOLF TWITLER

With enough funding from amused patrons, the rest of the creature’s tribe could hopefully be housed in there also… 

I enjoy dreaming of great endings to otherwise pathetic dramas.

    OUTSTANDING my friend! The tweaks made it even better, and I really didn’t think that was possible since your comment that gave birth to this wonderful story was already perfect! Thank you for making my day brighter!!!!!

        You are a seriously good writer Sha’Tara and I love your sense of humor — thank you for being my wordpress friend!

    Quite a fitting ending to this creature indeed! And, I loved your explanation of souls on my blog. I left you a message on that one…it was great!

      Thanks for commenting, George. Yes I got your other comment also – I do email with WordPress which keeps me mostly in the loop, yeah!

        My post is done: but I’ve saved your comments for all eternity on my hard drive. I will refer to your synopsis of the Time Lords and the true meaning of the soul more than once as I continue writing my story…thanks for sharing those thoughts.

        That’s great George. Milk the info for all it’s worth to you, whether it crosses your radar as pure sci-fi or possibly valid info. I don’t need validation, hah!

      Great comment, thanks. I could see the “creature” actually going through its paces while I was writing it up… quite amusing actually. A comic strip would be great – maybe somebody will pick up on it and use it – it’s totally free folks, any takers? 🙂

      Thank you, Notes. Yeah, speaking my mind has never been much of a problem; doing it at the appropriate time, that’s another story!

      Thanks, Frank. Once in a while I need to test my system to see if it can still do decent satire. If I’d had the time to keep up my drawing skills I would have done it cartoon style.

      Glad you were entertained. I certainly enjoyed writing it up, even if it troubled my claim to live the compassionate life somewhat. I consoled myself by knowing that if I came across DT out in the desert in need of help, I would not hesitate to grant it… then I would show him my piece of satire on my cell phone. Just so he’d know I wasn’t helping him in hope of getting some payback.
