Elevating elevators lifting the righteous rich towards Heaven. Glittering gold and shimmering sheen. Momentous money mountains. Malevolent me, here to enact vicious vengeance.
They can’t / won’t / must not get away with it. Litigious lawyers run rings round rigged rulings. Judges adjudicate in favour of backhand bribes.
The little man misses out. The little man suffers serious consequences. The little man loses living and life.
Flash the badge. A cop’s career careering to a catastrophic climax. The bilious billionaire will buy it big time. A bullet will shatter the glass house. Towers will tumble, truth will triumph.
Me, the martyr to cure the cancerous malignancy and reignite righteous revolution.
Written for Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields (more details HERE). The idea is to write a short story of 100 words based on the photo prompt (above).
After a break from the Friday Fictioneers Fun, it’s great to be participating again, and to see, and read, so many familiar faces. I hope everyone is well and I hope to be back on a more regular basis in the months ahead. The summer wasn’t all rest and relaxation though, as I finished my next novel and am delighted to have signed a contract to publish it with The Book Guild Ltd. You can read more about ‘The Barra Boy’ HERE, and look out for publication in Summer 2022.
