Severance

100 Words of Speculation written over a background of fountain pen and printed text

Our first plan was Semtex. Once we factored in the cost of drill bits, we realised an X-ray laser was cheaper. And there’s something symbolic about severing cleanly.

Some might say that we compromised our purity a little on power; but if you think about it, we turned the enemy against itself.

We’d have got away with it, if we hadn’t added the umbilical. The temptation of cheap wine and fags was too much though.

I am insulted by the verdict: not guilty by way of insanity. We’re not mad. We were doing what the country wanted: separation from Europe.
