Election 2012 – Call Me Trivial – Certain Things Swirl in the Brain (Flash 55)

Election 2012 – Call Me Trivial – Certain Things Swirl in the Brain

Dog on a fast car roof (hosed
through cage
at rest stop) does not speak
to me
of empathy,
nor does ganging tackle (with scissors)
of slightly-foppish blonde boy.

Guiding near-blind teacher into glass
Ha ha. Ha

You think
I’m not
being fair?
But it’s all
in good fun.




Above my offering to the G-man – 55 words without title .  ( And, yes, I know, I’m not being fair. And I’m sorry to offend- although these stories –all told of one specific candidate – do tend to stick in my brain.  But, sure, boys will be boys.   And, the dog – well – his name was Seamus – and hey, it can be darn hard to control a dog in a car on a long trip driving on fast highways, and I bet there are some countries people would like to tie on roofs.)

Have a great weekend.

    Well done, k. I try to be impartial about personalities and stick to issues, which heaven knows is enough, but its very hard with people like this.

  5. Patti Says:

    Yep. Me neither. Like I commented on another 55, we have to laugh, because otherwise, it is all too depressing.

    … yes, all little boys are angels… Really, they really, really had to search for “something”. Binders of women are a good thing! 🙂 I think he seems like a great guy! (sorry everyone 🙂

  7. David King Says:

    Sure thing — and great fun just aint trivial! Me like.
