the merry band

Photo from Tess Kincaid's collection  for Magpie Tales

last thing that they said
when they was loaded
in the van
was that
the ol' bastard deserved it
then they smiled
for the cameraman

the window
glided down
as they was being hauled away
two blushing beauties
waved
like it was their wedding day

then a fresh faced
vigilante
let out a rebel yell
"Hey Mr. Reporter
listen up, boy
we got some news to tell!"

Rejoice now!
All ye citizens
the demon dragon
has been slain
Hell yeah!
we done, done it
and we'd do it
all again

  3. That's right, kiddies. Slay the dragon when the dragon needs to be slain. Just watch out for the coppers!

  9. Intriguing piece... but with where my mind has gone, not sure any one was a winner in this one. Hopefully a longer version by you was not as cynical as I interpreted.

  10. @Reflections...Yeah, this ones intriguing for sure, and it's a mystery to me what becomes of the three. No longer version planned.This is just what came out of me when I saw the photo prompt.
