Doom and Gloom
“Good morning captain!” Commander Marshall said.
“Good morning Marshall!” Captain Bright replied with a smile.
“What do you have for me this morning, Marshall?”
“It’s the U.S., sir. There’s doom and gloom everywhere!”
“How serious is it, Marshall?”
“To the extreme, sir.”
“I’ll contact their Commander in Chief.”
“Everyone there has tried to reach him, but nobody can get through to him!”
“What do you hear from the field?”
“There’s murder, demonstrations, terrorists attacks, broken health system, corruption, constant lies, freedom of speech gradually being taken away and that’s just a sample, sir.”
Captain Bright said, “let’s get right on it! Shed some light on the situation.”
The champagne towers were immediately erected with bright colorful lights radiating throughout the country.
Captain Bright said, “it will take a while but soon things will change for the better. The people have hope now and will work together toward getting their country back to the exceptional one it has always been!”
