Dancing In The Street

It doesn’t matter what you wear, just as long as you are there

So come on, every guy, grab a girl, everywhere, around the world

They’ll be dancing, dancing in the street

by David Bowie, Mick Jagger

What a cliché • Three Line Tales

Blood, brains and pieces of skull had been dripping their way ever so slowly downwards on the wall above what was once a man’s head, his mouth still full with the pump-action’s barrel, with one muscular hand holding the other end on his six-pack.

‘What a cliché’ Bigsby muttered through her COVID-19 protection mask which sat half crooked on her face in order to allow some room for the thick straw which other end sat in an iced Latte, ‘what possessed him…’ she continued barely audible, more to herself than anyone else ‘…to spend more than two months in this deserted excuse for paradise?’

Her partner, walking over to switch off the mini-stereo on the dresser opposite the luxury twin bed which played the same song on repeat ‘let me take you down to Paradise City where the grass is green and the girls are pretty…’, said ‘paradise… what a cliché.’

Lucifer’s Dilemma • Three Line Tales

‘Shall I take his soul?

It is the perfect setting…late, deserted, on a crosswalk…and there are buses nearby

It is now or some other time… so shall I or shan’t I take this lonely poor soul?’

Three Line Tales • Oh no…

First instinct: ‘rules are for people who want to live by them’

Stumbled onto 2nd sign, lying on the ground: ‘SNAKES. DID WARN U’

‘Sssssst’….’Oh no!’

Three Line Tales • Denial

Me: ‘Daddy, you and your whole generation knew this was going to happen.’

Father: ‘Just keep on swimming Little John. You can tell him yourself. We’ll be with him soon.’

Me: ‘But I hate to go. Uncle Donald and you will just keep on spouting more nonsense that this has nothing to do with global warming.’

Thought: ‘Blondie, my dearest miserable brat, why won’t you smile at me… just this once?’

Said instead: ‘That’s it little darling, look the other way and smile at Mommie then…’

Did… later that night: buried her lifeless body in the backyard.
