Congressman Galloway was pleased with the bill. It had garnered near unanimous approval. Within the next three years, we would become a ‘green’ nation. Trash repositories would become green-initiatives. We were well on the way to becoming a “leave-no-footprint” world. The Boy Scouts, the Girl Scouts, Sojourners and the Trail Blazers were all eager participants.

GREENow (Green-Ready Energy-Efficient Now) was the buzz phrase. People were being paid to make earth-friendly decisions. Those that were not on board were being inculcated with passive participation. Hostile families were being instructionally-trimmed and brought on board.

Small ‘green’ effigies- those who refused-were being used to foster the cause. The topiary was eye-catching. Because of GREENow, everyone served the greater good. The Anti-GREENow protests, though few now, facilitated beautifully sculptured parks and attractive additions to the boulevards near city transit facilities.

It was a win-win for everyone. The world was now safe. Mankind was GREENow.

  1. Thanks for another excellent story Roger, and yes, you did forget the opening lines. No worries. Thanks for writing again for the MFtS challenge, and stay tuned. Something will be flying through the air next week! Be well… ^..^
