Tyrant's Greeting

Chorus: We have some tragic news for boys and girls throughout the land The enemy is on his way and soon you will Be under his command Hello, America, do you know me? I’m the tyrant that you could not overthrow I’ve been making plans to take you Get you in my hands and break you Since you slipped outside my grip so long ago You tell the world I have no power You forget the secret bargains that we made Those who walked this land before you And the blacks who labored for you And the poor when they implored you You abandoned them to me as tribute paid Chorus: We have some tragic news for boys and girls throughout the land Your parents went and sold you into slavery Please don’t be mad How could they understand The life you took for granted was fragile as a dream One day you’ll all wake up and it will fade away And all be gone And it won’t come back No matter how you scream [guitar-bass duo] Our merry chase is almost over You should know by now there’s no escape from me Very soon

This did nothing to improve her mood. The intelligence of the australopithecines and the previous members of genus Homo was a little hard to gauge, but if you just went by brain size as shown in the fossil record, there was a slow, steady increase for about seven million years, then a slightly faster increase between three and two million years ago… and then things really took off.

Who Are These People And What Do They Want? Part 5

Who Are These People And What Do They Want? Part 5

Walter Yuschak is a big fat red-faced guy who shaves his head because he noticed his bald spot was growing and decided to get proactive about it. Here ends the physical description. He’s more defined by his voice anyway, which is kind of high and rasping — not pleasant, but penetrating and hard to ignore. It’s gotten him his own weekly TV show.

His hair was iron-gray frosted with white around the ears — possibly the most presidential hair of anyone in Congress. His face was equally skilled at stern expressions and reassuring smiles.

Usually, when a presidential candidate is the villain, they're so Obviously Evil that even the Republicans wouldn't touch them. That way, the reader can feel superior to all the SHEEPLE who would presumably be taken in by this huckster. My goal here is to do the opposite — to create a candidate that reasonable people might be tempted to vote for. Holbrooke Morgan is the last of the big three female characters. If Isabel is the maiden of the trio (she’s had sex with men and women, but work with me here) and Carrie is the mother, Brooke — the most conventionally attractive of the three — would be the crone. Here’s
