Word-Monkey Junkie

My Man!
Spot me a 20?
Why don’t you scoop me, we’ll whack it up!
My buddy works at the stadium,
two hot dogs and a shake. No doubt.
I used to flip fandango with the fellas
and fantasize about flippers.
I need to go with God. Godspeed!
Get the monkey off my back.

Inspired by
Flash Fiction 55

    tight write…its either God or the monkey it seems and you captured that perfectly in just 55 words. I had to miss the g-man’s place this past friday, but I am glad I caught your Flash fiction here…

    I’m glad I am ignorant of the drug culture – except to see the results in drug rehab.

    A nicely played 55
    glad you joined us!!!!

    Now that’s a 55 with a serious message.

    Wow, you’re excellent with words, Gio. Flipping fandango fellas and all that — no idea what those words mean — but LOVE the sound of them. Ahhh, poetry rocks!

    Great to meet you from G-Man’s!!

    Have a great day!

    Very haunting words!!

    My 55 is a double whammy this week, two for the price of one. Of course, as always, you need to scroll down below my Friday’s Show n Tell.

    The link is HERE I’d love to have you stop by for a visit.
