Eight Years From Now

Post Trump turtle in the White House

I was feeling that I couldn’t wade through the eight years of Trump’s two terms, so I got in my time machine and rode to the Oval Office of January 21, 2025.

I was surprised to discover that the office was empty except for a round turtle bowl placed on the desk. There was a tiny turtle sitting on the plastic island surrounded by water in the middle of the bowl. The turtle looked up at me with hungry eyes. I noticed a canister of Wardley Turtle Premium Flakes next to the bowl. I shook the flakes into the water. The turtle dove in and began devouring the food.

It felt like I was making a difference.
