Oh, the celebration!
America’s most recent purchase from France has arrived and all the world has turned out to see. Dignitaries from across the globe have front-row seats for this momentous occasion. The Queen of England with her entourage sits next to the Prime Minister of India with his.
The crowd cheers as the president is led to the platform. For all he has done for America, our esteemed president will be the first.
Everything is in place, the tracks are greased, blade sharpened, equipment tested, only the basket is missing.
The crowd grows silent in anticipation of the release.
The president’s head rolls at my blood-spattered feet as the crowd thunders.
“Best seats in the house.” I wink at my husband as more politicians are brought to join the growing line.
America has declared her independence once again.
