Friday Fictioneers – Gone

PHOTO PROMPT © Trish Nankivell

Some might describe His Lordship’s sense of humour as wicked. But, then again, many called him wicked. He told us it was art. We preferred the word revenge.

The sculpture, at the village entrance, of the donkey with its head in the sand were funny, no mistake. Except, we was the butt of the joke. Bugger had the whole settlement flattened and renamed Gone.

If only Maisie hasn’t refused him.

  1. Ah, yeah, poor donkey with the head in the sand and a penchant for causing misery to all because he feels wronged.
    I got me a feeling we most of us know at least one someone who is focused on scorching earth and rewarding blind fealty. …

    Happy Christmas, Neil. May better times soon unfold (and may the bad times be GONE!)

  2. Brilliant! All the way through from the donkey sculpture, to the butt of the joke, which I taking as a play on the other name for a donkey, the razed town being renamed Gone, to the dark streak running through the humor. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
