The Lion’s Share

Of course there was no radio and no TV and cell phones gave off blue sparks. Gasoline turned to sand, weapons of every description vaporized, and various presidents, kings and despots stood on their balconies and cried out assurances.

People drifted into the dark streets. By daybreak it was all about food and water, and by week’s end the strong ruled the lion’s share of everything.
