Summary: Pope reflects on his life after the Skitters came.
Author's Note:Part 21 in my reflection series. My first for Falling Skies, which I do love, mainly because of the awesomeness of John Pope. He's really a great character. Hope you like it. Enjoy.  (Cheers for the beta celeste9 )

They had lived in this glorious and wonderful land of money and milk. They were so far up their arses that it sickened him. He had wanted all that stuff they had, but no matter how hard he tried, he never got it.

Then the cooties came and took it all away.  The stuck-ups don’t have it any more but for John Pope, he gained everything they lost.

Money had no use now, but he had the power that it had once brought.

The milk?  It was kept cold in a fridge, powered by a backup generator.

Ain’t life sweet?

Pope, yay!! *does happy dance*

Great look at Pope's thoughts, he is indeed kind of a king in a destroyed land.

Pope is pretty awesome, isn't he?

Thanks! I really liked writing this one about him. The milk actually being beer!

Glad you liked this. :)
