Political Puppet

“You can’t scare me into voting for you, you maniac!” Jason half-shouted, hardly believing the madness he was hearing. He turned in a circle, trying to see a single pair of sane eyes in the crowd. “What’s wrong with you people? Why are you listening to this lunacy?”

No one replied. Lombard watched.

“You’re no better than his damned puppets!”

“Oh no, Jason,” Lombard chuckled, gesturing to his silent, glaring fans, “they’re far more than them. No less damned though, perhaps.”

Jason turned and ran, almost tripping over himself to get back to his office.

“You’re the puppet Jason!” Lombard’s voice shrieked after him, “do you hear me? You’re the puppet!”
