Dear Diary

(Found sealed in a tin below a midden-pile in the ruined USian city of Trento, dating uncertain):

Most Esteemed Diary,

     At Education today in the Sharing, before we ate our beans and rice, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of Dear Leader's gift of a new puppy to his obedient daughters.  The Group-Mother reminded us that it was an example of the importance of sharing (one puppy, two children) and obeying our Leaders, who are more dear to us than than parents and who are leading us to peace and prosperity.  After we ate, we shared crayons and colored in pictures of puppies. I didn't feel very hungry at all.  We could drink all the water we wanted because it was special day.  The Group-Mother started screaming strange things about poor starving ragged children and the National Service Helpers had to take her away.  I don't know who she was talking about.  We got to go home early and Jimi said the Group-Mother was probably going to have to go to Education herself but he's bad and doesn't share very good.  I think he was trying to be mean about my Daddy.

     Before he had to go away to learn how to follow Dear Leader better, my Daddy told me about the puppies he had when he was a boy.  I wish I had a puppy.  Daddy said they were delicious roasted or boiled.  Maybe when we all learn how to share properly, everybody will get puppies.  At least once a year.

I'm sorry. Which is creepy? The entry (prophetic) or counterclckwise's photo?

What about the carbon footprint that will be emitted by cooking? Will it harm the ozone layer and increase global warming more than the methane and carbon dioxide emissions of uncooked dogs?

Would it be better to stew them? Inquiring minds want to know.

I think you were inspired by Poe's Mellonta Tauta, which is a good thing to be inspired by.

Now follow, children:

"I pledge allegiance, to the leader, of the Intertwined States of Earth, and to the Party, one post-national political entity, with bread and circuses for all."
