Glass Eye

Digitized vision bore witness to the beatdown the woman was getting. Boots collided with ribs; soles trampled on limbs.

She laid helpless on the ground. The cameras were mute, content just to watch and record and to then send that data to the national database.

No one who saw that footage would care for her plight. The glass eyes were vigilant, dedicated to protecting the population and helping to enforce law and order.

She was just a dissident.

Author’s Note: Today’s Three Word Wednesday words are helpless, trample, vigilant.
