The Crime of Passion

Imagine a world where sex is illegal.

I don’t know about you, but for me, THIS is the first image that comes to mind:

Now, go back to watching dirty sluts on Spankwire and thank your lucky stars that this is not the case.

It is, however, the central premise for my newest flash fiction challenge piece!  This week, Wendig‘s assignment was to come up with our own sub genre of the something-punk category (cyberpunk, steampunk, or in Chuck’s case – cornpunk) and write a short story ~ 1,000 words or less in that new style.

Like the typical horny man that I am, I came up with the idea for a SEXPUNK story.  Here’s my tweet-friendly synopsis:  In a time when overpopulation threatens to destroy civilization as we know it, the government bans sex in an effort to slow the birth rate.

we rise up and deliver
a fatal strike to end the tyranny

Send the call by way of land,

TRUTH

When words become estranged,
their meanings start to change…
Replaced and reinstated,
their letters rearrange…

Truth turns into Terror,

Distinct becomes Disgust;

Solace turns to Silence,
Free reborn as Fear;

When Truth is taken,
Wisdom hides…
For Ignorance is near.
