My Writing Tips
Those who seek power
The most unworthy of it
Power becomes crime
NIGHT COP: The cop watched the suspect
break in. Waiting for him to exit the
house, he attacked from the rear – took
the spoils – his own pension pot.
Good intentions strike
But look for motive behind
Pact with the devil
SHADOW: ‘Don’t walk on me,’ he said.
He was the dark shadow of society; the
criminal in all our heads – fear the
shadow, or society fears you.
MICROPEDIE IN 55 WORDS
Sacrifice – in early societies, pact between man & nature. As society advanced, religion refocused on society, nature being sacrificed.
Saint – icon to whom we should aspire. Basically, an image without substance. Latest cultural expression? Cult of the pointless celebrity.
Salem – modern blueprint for witchhunt, where rumour leads to persecution & all end up looking stupid – except the dead.
Blogger Bard says:
FLOW: Cash flow problems? None at all!
His liquidity was sound; money washed
thru his fence often. It could be dirty,
but was soon laundered.
GADABOUT: Seeking pleasure could be
expensive so the cat burglar learnt his
trade well. Breaking in, he always knew
where the expensive cats were.
LIGHT HOUSE: The security lights lit
up the house, protecting it from crime.
Yet they were immediately imprisoned
as they stole the dark.
