A Meeting By The River

Over on Medium, I have posted a short satire on the PRISM programme:

When he arrived, my agency source was out of breath. He had clearly been running to make our appointment.

“Busy day at the office?” I asked, keeping my eyes on the river.

“You have no idea,” he panted, as he slumped onto the other end of the bench.

I dropped the newspaper into the space between us, and slid it towards him. Edward Snowden’s righteous face blinked out from the front page.

“He looks like something out of one of those vampire movies for girls” said my contact.

I ignored the diversion and got straight to the point.“Why didn’t you tell me?”

You can read the whole thing on Medium.
