The Stand Still

Things were rather desolate now.  Public transport was halted, offices empty, tables un-served.

All because of blind political policies and the clash of ideologies.

Yes, the high-born, privately educated premier had an agenda: wealth and privilege must be preserved.

The opposition leader and his trade union supporters similarly demanding the rights of the common folk.  “Resign,” they demanded.

Thus do ultimatums lead.
