Three Word Wednesday CLI

Written for 3WW.
The words this week are:
Decay, Graceful, and Riot.

Here's mine:

PROLETARIAT? PERHAPS!
Decay and revolution, as graceful as a starvation riot. The proletariat storm The Bastille, hoping for a crust of bread. Polishing her nails, she dismisses them, "give them cake, to eat," she says.

  2. I always say 'when in doubt, eat cake!'

    And I like your use of the words.
