They say nice guys finish last. They’re right. I tried being nice. I tried following the rules, and look what it got me! No money, no job, just burns and scars from years working in a factory that fired me.

The symbol of injustice looms, blissfully unaware. Soon he will know the pain of the working class. Soon they all will know my pain!

Patriotic music blares as the line inches along. Ten people ahead of me… then five, three, one. One man, one moment, one shot. My hand trembles, gripping the concealed revolver. BANG!
