The Members of the Party
They meet together on the free days, pulling up with pride in their chariots upon the glistening morning sun. They arise before the others are hardly out of bed and venture into the halls of warehouses, where they can better organize and plot. Some come proud, others tepid, but all know what they must do for The Party. First, second, and third choices don't matter, everyone's liable to be called out. The number one reason for such is unity, the party leads the way. Some call it an ideological struggle, others think in practice, but all go beyond themselves, to feel the warmth of home. Like the Prussian General out on the field, the instructions are amplified out, and poured over screens. Yet, no one is wrong, everyone is right, and The Party gets to gleam.
