Thank you Ellespeth for this week’s prompt.
Straw (wo)man is not commonly encountered working in a real farms. They are accustomed to lavish surroundings of climate-controlled debating halls of the rich and mighty.
Unfortunately arguments quarrels, squabbles and fights have replaced debate. The poor ‘debate’ is in ICU on a ventilator and straw (wo)men – Jiya and Jill are now forced to work in fields and farms. Jiya laments her condition constantly and Jill the more pragmatic one consoles her that their adversity shall soon end.
The farmer smiles sardonically. He knows that the situation shall only deteriorate – the debate cannot replace argument in near future just as agricultural income cannot be taxed.
