    A Dark & Dusty Tale

    I was not at all satisfied with the eventual outcome of this short story, but upon reflection, I can't see it ending any other way. It depicts the ultimate control that the "haves" can exercise over the "have-nots", and the strong urge of survival normally governing the actions and decisions of the latter. A dark and dusty tale, but well crafted.
