Microfiction Monday


Susan at Stony River is being provocative again. No kidding, once a week she really lets her inhibitions down and CHALLENGES us to be . . . CREATIVE! Each week she gives us an illustration and forces us to cram our otherwise verbose blog entries into 140 characters. That includes spaces and punctuation. For the few, the proud, the humbled, we struggle on. If this sounds like humility you could benefit from, join us at Susan's place by clicking her name above! Here is this week's illustration, followed by my entry, with GRAVEST apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

Half a league half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Death
Rode the …
Oh hell, wrong poem!

See, that's what those lit high school courses do. They cram all this stuff in one's head to muddle up and soon the evil visier from Aladin is riding Black Beauty in the charge of the light brigade and nobody knows how that happened!

Excellent story!

Not just the wrong poem, but the silly fellow forgot his musket.

I loved your contribution on First 50 Words. Thanks for writing another 140 characters there as well.

Very funny story. All those poems are confusing.
