“The Meme” / Memorable Fancies #843

       I invented a meme, a harmless catch-phrase and the thought behind it. After numerous failed experiments on fellow-drinkers hanging out at my neighborhood bar, I finally hit upon exactly the right cognitive formula that allowed my meme to spread rapidly, a kind of mind-virus.

    But then my meme mutated, as a gene would, acquired a taint of suspicion and desperate fear. It became dangerous, but it was out of my hands even as I warned the citizens against it.

    The war began shortly after that.
