Son of Waru
A Ship Of True Fools
My Terrible, Mediocre Attempt At Dystopian Satire
“Sir!” cries the crows nest. “Dead ahead, a homoborg ship!”.
“Stay on course” the Captain replies. “Everything is fine”
But it wasn’t. The Homoborg despise homo-sapiens for their rebellious attitudes, and do not waste any moment of thinking to “convert” homo-sapiens.
“I think the reports on these things are over-exaggerated”. “No sir!”. A man runs to the Captain. “You must avoid meeting that ship, if they see us they will remove all emotions from us and we’ll become mindless drones”
“EXCUSE ME!!” a woman screams. “How dare you say such offensive things, the Homoborg have no racism, no sexism and no war”
Of course this ignores the fact Homoborgs don’t have such things because there is no difference between them all. Any slight difference is eliminated.
Soon the three begin fighting over control of the ship. The Homoborg ship grows bigger as their ship gets closer.
An explosion rips through the hull. Did the Homoborg attack them? Did they hit a mine? The loud speaker soon confirms the reason.
“DESTROY THE SYSTEM, RETURN US TO WILD NATURE”
The woman and the captain run to one lifeboat, the man to another.
The woman and captain head to the Homoborg ship.
Soon, Homoborgs spot them and take them on board.
“You show too much difference, you are inefficient, accompany us and we will fix you”
And the Captain and woman enthusiastically walk with the Homoborg to be “corrected”.
The woman cries “I am no longer a woman! I identify as-”
Meanwhile the man sails away from the sinking ship until at a safe distance. He wipes the sweat from his brow. But his lifeboat begins rocking.
“USING A BOAT IS NOT NATURAL, YOU SHOULD BE SWIMMING, BE FREE FROM TECHNOLOGICAL SLAVERY”
The lifeboat tips over.
“PRAISE MOTHER NATURE”
The man resurfaces only to realise he is surrounded.
“READ UNCLE TED, JOIN US”
The sea grows stronger and the man and the revolutionaries are swept away. They are never seen again.
This was 30 years ago. Since then, the Homoborg have perfected their corrections. They live with perfect efficiency. The Homo-sapiens are nothing more than a memory. Primitivist revolutionary thought found a breakthrough in that any use of technology turns man into a tool, and so they killed other revolutionaries who used such, and they died from the harsh winter cold.
The Homoborg now dominate the Earth.
