The Lion’s Share

The phones went dead, the lights dimmed to brown, and the overhead sprinklers came on. Computers crashed and hard drives got sucked into a vacuum.

Of course there was no radio, no TV, and cell phones gave off blue sparks. Gasoline turned to sand, weapons vaporized, and various kings, presidents and despots stood on their balconies and cried out assurances. People drifted into the streets and in darkness formed alliances.

By daybreak it was all about food, water and shelter, and by week’s end the strong ruled the lion’s share of everything.

It would be months before God worked his way back into the picture.
