In the Future

In the future things will be much different. People won’t have to use their wings to fly to mountain resorts. Or use their fins or gills to breath under water on the way to the city’s festivities. They won’t have to talk to the animals and listen to their complaints. In the future they won’t have to stay up all day and night never to sleep. Or drink their own recycled perspiration and eat scientifically manufactured pills that taste like whole course meals. In the future their sun retardant, weather proof skin will be even more impenetrable from the elements. In the future…. only it is the future and they don’t know it.
