Dangerous Hypocrisy

A Mastodon writing prompt story. These are science fiction short stories (usually 480 characters or less), based on an image generated by EW Doc Parris using MidJourney.

The stories are originally posted on Mastodon via my personal account.

I cannot believe the world we live in. Here I am, Prisoner Number 451-1138, convicted of biohacking malpractice, and my job is to fabricate biomods for export to support the government’s revenue. Biomods, by the way, that would land you in here if you sold them in this country. But you can in others, and they have an incredible profit margin. Apparently this is okay.

I guess I just picked the wrong market. Next time, once I’m out.

Better get back to work.
