The Beast had spent four years locked in the Cupboard, but still it spread fear in the population. Scores of macho men had challenged it; none had survived.
Finally, Martha Daniels arrived. Her plan? Confront the monster with an army of those whom it feared most – African-Americans, Hispanics, LGBT, women.
"Monster, we confront you!" they chanted outside the Cupboard Door.
The monster roared mightily.
"Monster, we have nothing to fear but fear itself," Martha replied, slowly opening the Cupboard Door.
A tiny wizened figure peered out at its adversaries.
"Good morning, Mr President," Martha said, quietly. "Your time is up."

Great story, Gordon. Wonderful surprise ending. Some say truth is stranger than fiction - I'm hoping your fiction is truer than true in a few days time :)

We shall overcome roars the army on November 3. Let's hope your prediction comes true, Gordon, and the door opens to release the monstrous chaos and let in peace and stability.

He's busy reinforcing that door from the other side... and he has help. It isn't going to be easy to dislodge him.
