Reality track #1 Dystopia

...and then came the fallout. There were no more walks around the block. The parks and neighborhoods stood lonely. Fearful hearts hunkered down behind closed doors...took to the mattresses. It was hard to find nourishment for the mind and for the belly. Those who had a good companion during those days were lucky. The ones who had bad companions were out of luck.
Then came the announcement that on certain days, people were allowed to leave the house to receive their inoculation. Everybody who was inoculated got their freedom in return so it was said. The ones who had gotten free made sure all others complied with the offer. The few who resisted were brought into facilities for re-education. Then microchips were implanted in all bodies, so no body could get lost...in the wrong place...in the wrong thought...in the new found freedom.
...and the bellies were full again, and the doors allowed to open...and the world was new
...after the fallout
