Published: Separation Notice (Vestal Review)

I wrote this piece of satire earlier in September when we were all awestruck with the hurricanes in the US, the journalist killings in India, the genocides in Bangladesh, and more. And, of course, the daily presidential disasters. It seems that the more outrageous our world becomes, the less we are capable of any sane response to it. Okay, maybe that's just a small minority of us who need to resort to absurdist tropes and satire in our work to be able to carry on with it. Anyway, this is an official layoff notice to the Patron Saint of Disasters, Saint Medard. You can read more about him here.
