Nation Turns Gun On Itself and Wants Just One Fucking Reason

“Just give us one reason, just one fucking reason not to do this and we won’t. Just one. We don’t need a list, we don’t need an impassioned speech. Hell, it doesn’t even need to be a good reason, just one reason to wake up in the morning, go to our jobs and not blow our fucking brains out all over this garage. That’s all we’re asking for. Please.” the Nation said with tears rolling down its eyes, falling, almost as if in slow-motion, onto the oil-stained cement.

The path to deciding the 45th President of the United States of America has been a long, grueling and ultimately soul-crushing one which has finally ended with the election of Donald J. Trump.

On the campaign trail the President elect was rude, abrasive, stupid and showcased time and time again why he should never be allowed anywhere near the White House let alone become the President of these United States. Yet November 8th revealed that this didn’t mean much to most Americans who voted the openly sexist, racist and genuinely stupid man into the Oval Office, and the Nation just doesn’t see any reason to keep going.

“We believed that we were good people,” the Nation said while loading a revolver with shaking hands, “we thought that, sure, we had some bad apples but this many? This bad? We just had no idea.” The Nation locked the chamber into place and pulled the hammer back before putting the gun in their mouths, forming a seal around the barrel with their lips and looking up at us one last time, begging with their eyes for one reason not to. One glimmer of hope, however shallow or empty it might be. Even if it was a lie. One final tear rolled down the Nation’s eye as they closed their eyes and their hands went steady.

We had no answer for them.
