Scribe’s Cave Picture Prompt #70 – Natural Wonder


It was a shame the Acme Plastic Plate Company went out of business. After all the latest building to use their high tensile plates were now standing looking somewhat desolate in a state of non completion.

Along with their demise was the loss of serious subsidiary industries such as the National Plastic Shaping Workshop and Grice’s Plastic Glue and Adhesive Company.

Thousands were out of work including the hundreds who worked on the assembly of the buildings. Now the community was left with an eye sore of monumental proportions.

There was uproar in the streets, protests and demonstrations but all to no avail as the bottom had fallen out of plastic and there was no going back.

After weeks of discussion it was decided to leave the buildings unfinished and grow climbing roses over the structure.

Fifty years later it was classed as one of the natural wonders of the 23rd century.

    I suppose we’ve all become healthnics in the 23rd century then … or plastics have become quite strong 😉 Well done!
