The Craft

Gateway Arch, St. Louis, Missouri, USA

The strange craft had landed two days ago. It stood there silently, as if surveying the landscape.

Everyone in a vicinity of a few miles had been evacuated by the National Guard.

Troops and armoured vehicles had surrounded the craft, weapons ready and pointed.

The atmosphere was tense with anticipation. What terrible creatures would emerge?

Suddenly a door at the top of the craft opened and out walked the Tax Collector, the Lawyer, the Investment Banker and the Social Media Network CEO.

I added the Social Media CEO reference because they’ve been getting a bad rap these days for a number of reasons.
