Disastrous - Daily Prompt

Displeased with an unjust aristocracy, my

Ill-at-ease, combat-boot, pistol packing protagonist

Saddles her bag and crosses a moonlit bridge leading

Away from her dystopian

Society ravaged with politicians

Touting equality and proposing

Remedies riddled with ambiguities, my

Outraged protagonist flees iniquity for

Utopia where the populace matters not just a

Shameful wealthy few
