Today’s drabble celebrates(?) the Pope’s retirement…
Gerald looked out the window, the Wall on the other side of the street looming large and forbidding. He never paid it much attention, but the night before he had read about the history of the religion gene and a world full of war, judgment and old men telling everyone else what to do.
He couldn’t sleep for the nightmares.
His mother told him not to be silly. Those whose faulty DNA made them believe in a vengeful God were safely shut away.
As he stared, nightmare became reality. The Wall bulged, then exploded.
Religion was on the loose again.
