Drabble: The Conference

The Conference

It promises to be one of humanity’s great moments.

Or, we all hope so.

The theory goes thusly: The problems of the world can be, and in fact have been solved. Just, the solutions never stick, because self-important, privelleged college kids have no way to implement them.

But there were those who could. So all of the major world leaders come together tonight, in a locked den with overstuffed couches, dim light, and a bottomless supply of espresso, cheap booze, clove cigarettes, and pot. The door will not be unlocked till dawn.

All we can do now is hope.
