The wall

A very powerful political personality had built a wall in the city that divided into two parts a major road going to the beach because his palace was situated on that road.

The left side of the road was thus blocked and us lower mortals could use only half the road for going to the sea shore which would cause a lot of stress. A court ordered the removal of the wall and reopening of the road but to no avail. Finally, the Rangers stepped in and did it in three days. As the great Mao said, “Power flows from the barrel of a gun.”
