The Unforgiven

 

By Shadowgate

 

Timothy Buckson woke up on a Saturday morning. For Timothy it was just another weekend in a town he hated. The new school year did not start off well. The kids couldn't use the computers without teacher supervision. A new school uniform policy went effect this year and most kids hated it. However with fascism creeping up on America Timothy Buckson along with numerous other children were going to be anything but happy.

 

Over the past week Timothy Buckson told his parents he hated school but he would do the school work because he had to. He also told his parents that he hated the new teachers.

 

His parents asked him if he was having emotional problems. Timothy denied it and said he just hated it. His parents felt seventh grade was just a hard grade. They decided to take his word for it because after all he was just 13.

 

Timothy went to the mall with his friend Robin Bind who was also 13. They were just friends and not in a romantic relationship.

 

They sat down in the food courtyard with their hotdogs/fries/sodas.

 

Over the mall intercom they played Metallica's hit.

"The Unforgiven"

New blood joins this earth,
And quickly he's subdued.
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules.

With time the child draws in.
This whipping boy done wrong.
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he's known
A vow unto his own,
That never from this day
His will they'll take away.

What I've felt,
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be.
Never see.
Won't see what might have been.

What I've felt,
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his.
He tries to please them all –
This bitter man he is.

Throughout his life the same –
He's battled constantly.
This fight he cannot win –
A tired man they see no longer cares.

The old man then prepares
To die regretfully –
That old man here is me.

What I've felt,
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be.
Never see.
Won't see what might have been.

What I've felt,
What I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

What I've felt,

Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never be.

Won't see what might have been.

What I've felt,

Never shined through in what I've shown.
Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

You labelled me,
I'll label you.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

You labelled me,
I'll label you.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

Never free.
Never me.
So I dub thee unforgiven.

 

Robin commented how that song really applies today. Timothy said "no kidding all these new bastards in government. Did you know in TX they're trying to pass a law that says if a teacher thinks a kid is gay that teacher has to call the kid's parents and tell them so?"

 

Robin said "oh my God!"

 

Timothy said "oh these new officials that weren't even elected are working for the Vatican and Israel. They hate our Constitution."

 

Robin said "well if they can put us in school uniforms they can do anything."

All of a sudden a woman walked up to the table Timothy and Robin were sitting at. She screamed "Why the fuck are you two wearing Metallica t-shirts to the mall?"

 

Timothy answered "what's your problem?"

The woman screamed "THERE ARE ELDERLY LADIES OVER THERE AND THEY DON'T WANT KIDS WEARING WHATEVER THEY WANT."

 

Robin said "neither of those old ladies are my parents and neither are you."

 

The woman screamed "DON'T YOU GET AN ATTITUDE WITH ME YOUNG LADY!"

 

Timothy said "we were minding our own business."

 

The angry woman called a police officer over to complain to him. The police officer said he couldn't do anything because Timothy and Robin broke no laws.

 

The angry woman said "well when the churches do their final take over these kids will be put in line."

 

She then stormed off.

One hour later Timothy returned home.

 

He was shocked to see his parents shaking and upset.

 

Timothy had just gotten through the front door and not long after both his parents screamed his name.

 

His dad Jared had a dirty look on his face and his mom Ellen was shaking.

 

Timothy asked "what's the problem?"

 

Jared said "your teacher Mrs. Haldeman called and said she overheard you and your friend Thomas Jackson talking about an R-rated movie you two watched when you spent the night at his house."

 

Timothy said "well that had no effect on her."

 

Ellen yelled "now days if a teacher finds out about you watching an R-rated movie that teacher has to call your parents to let them know about it."

 

Timothy replied back "it happened over the weekend off school grounds and nobody's education suffered because of that. Mrs. Haldeman is a Goddamn bitch."

 

Jared snapped "language."

 

Timothy asked "are you really this mad because my best friend and I watched an R-rated movie?"

 

Jared said "well your mother isn't happy and I'm concerned about the New Era Security finding out."

 

Timothy looked puzzled.

 

Jared went on to explain that "the new world order government you've been hearing about is called the New Era Security. They are the new national government of the USA. If that teacher reports this to the police we could all be in big trouble."

Timothy asked "how did this New Era Security Government come to be? Just four years ago the police were arresting people for crime. We all knew our local police. Now these new cops we're seeing are very new."

 

Jared pointed out "yes they are the police of the New Era Security Government."

 

Timothy said "it's getting really bad. Today I was at the mall with Robin and some old lady was screaming at us about our Metallica t-shirts. She called a police officer over she was so mad. We didn't do a damn thing to her."

 

Ellen yelled "OH MY GOD" and dropped her measuring cup shattering it on the floor.

 

Timothy said "the police officer didn't do anything."

 

Ellen "oh well some police are not jumping on every little thing but that woman could have had you and Robin arrested because she was offended by your Metallica t-shirts. You're lucky that police officer chose to ignore that situation."

 

Timothy said "incidentally while Robin and I were in the mall they played the Unforgiven by Metallica. How fitting for what I'm going through in my life."

 

Jared said "it's hard to believe that song came out 50 years ago."

 

Timothy pouted and said "back when America was America. The worst thing they had at that time was the PMRC."

 

Ellen was surprised. "Timothy you really do know your American history."

 

Timothy replied "America will be no more unless this new world order collapses."

 

Soon there was a loud knock on the door.

 

Jared said "who could that be?"

 

There was a second loud knock on the door.

 

Timothy yelled "WHO IS IT?"

"POLICE" was the response he got.

Timothy opened the door and the police officer said "I'm looking for Timothy Buckson."

Timothy said "speaking" and the officer said "I'm a police officer assigned to your city by the New Era Security Government. We got a report from a teacher that you watched an R-rated movie with a friend and parental permission was not granted or stands in question."

Timothy replied "we did it off school grounds so it's none of the teacher's Goddamn business."

Ellen snapped "Timothy."

Timothy snapped back "what mom!"

The police officer said "the new government in place is enhancing parental authority by finding out information like this and taking action. We are about law and order Timothy and I suggest you cooperate."

Timothy shot back "no the police we had before the New Era Security Government were all about law and order. You're all about fascism. As for parental authority, parents have found tons of ways to discipline their kids throughout the years. Spanking them, grounding them, public sign holding humiliation, and forced public apologies. The only people who screamed that parental authority had gone down the gutter were angry people who wanted a theocracy or they were fat ladies who bitched about everything."

 

The police officer became angry and said "to speak that knowledge is an act of high rebellion."

 

The police officer used a stun gun on Timothy knocking him over. Jared became angry and he punched the police officer. The policer officer pulled out his pistol and shot Jared and Ellen. Timothy Buckson was arrested and charged with rebellious speech against the New Era Security Government. He was also charged with watching an R-rated movie without parental permission that carries a two year term in juvenile hall. The first charge however was considered an act of treason that carried an automatic death sentence upon conviction.

 

Two days later his trial began and the whole town was interested. It was big news.

 

The prosecutor's first witness was the police officer. After the police officer testified Timothy got on the stand. He could barely focus since his parents had just been murdered by the police officer who testified against him. When his lawyer went to cross examine him all Timothy could say is "that rotten police officer killed my parents."

The trial lasted 45 minutes. The judge said guilty and sentenced 13 year old Timothy Buckson to death by lethal injection.

 

Timothy Buckson was transported to the state maximum security prison.

 

Two days later he was given his last shower, last physical exam, and last meal.

 

When he was escorted to the execution chamber he sang Unforgiven by Metallica. They strapped him down. He was given a heavy dose of an anesthetic and pronounced dead in 15 minutes.

 

THE END
