100-Word Fiction: ‘This Is a Possible Fiction’

Demands were made to sack them. If they excercised their legal rights, employers should be able to ensure workers had no job on their return: strikes should become illegal. The show must go on. So, shunt private cars from the roads, disrupt public services and tell the citizens to walk. Call for an exodus – it would be better if a large migration of inhabitants freed up space in the city. Ban foods, drinks and certain items of clothing. Force businesses to rebrand or close. Take ownership of vocabulary, shape and colour. Sanctify corporate sponsor status. This is a possible fiction.
