AnElephantCant believe it
Another week has flown by
He needs an idea
For the Fictioneers
So that he does not get left high and dry
Just write a 100 word story about this picture prompt.
Okay, guys, looks like this is it.
They are coming back again.
I suppose it was inevitable, now the weather has cleared.
They look as though they mean business this time.
They have a lot of equipment, most of it fatal to our species.
And not just the hand held weapons that rip us apart.
No, the chemicals do the real damage.
Those of us who got through the fence should be safe.
But it looks all over for the ones in here.
Good luck and goodbye, my brothers.
Yep, they are loading their sprays with herbicide.
WMDs for weeds.
I’d hate to think of what would happen if all the weeds got together. The rise of the Crabgrass Empire.
It’s touch being a weed. This is a great take on the prompt.
It’s tough when everyone is out to get all the weed and all the grass 😉
Pity the poor weeds! You led me up the garden path with this one, elephant 🙂
Love that POV.
And the reality check, that some battles can’t be won but must be fought anyway.
Show me poppies, daisies, cornflowers, buttercups, queen-Anne’s-lace and oodles of other flowers on the side of the road and we are looking at weeds…grass is better?
Sorry. Off the soap box now.
ha ha ha witty 🙂
Don’t turn your back
Or they’ll attack –
Three magic beans
Reach a Giant’s clouded kingdom scene
But if you’re still here…
Watch carefully as the poison ivy draws near…
I’ve only got my continuing story this week here…
So I’ll direct you to an unofficial photo prompted piece, enjoy:
Clever lad. I knew a twist was coming, I just didn’t know what it would be. Weeds was definitely unexpected. You set that up brilliantly.
WMD for weeds. lol
Now all those plants in forefront of the picture really do seem to be escaping. Well done!
Makes one rethink about weeds. Nah…I still don’t like them in my lawn. Clever story, however. Unique POV.
Come on, Rochelle, weeds are people too!
Thank you for your visit.
Reblogged this on The Cheese Whines and commented:
Cool story! I never knew a weed that obeyed a herbicide for long. 😉
Will the weeds return and wreak vengeance?
Time will tell!
Thanks for the visit, the comment and the reblog.
poor weeds.. a lovely fun read.. enjoyed this
Thank you, your compassion is welcomed here.
Weeds to some, flowers to others (a dandelion is still a flower to little Emma) another life form to the planet we share with them. I really like this one. The perspective and view, that of plant life. A view few too many take into consideration today! I also like the fact that the fence keeping the plants in was where the danger lay, not on the outside wilderness of the fence. Well conceived and written, thank you 🙂 xo
DANDYlions are still flowers to me too. 🙂
As Roy Orbison would say ‘Grrrooowwllll!’
AnElephant loves everything living
Whether animal plant or human
AnElephant keeps on giving
Jings, he even loves women
So now that the spraying has started
Let’s pray for the souls of departed!
Well done for the manner in which you succeed
In killing each weed in a hundred-word read!
For all nature’s creatures
Even sentient weeds
Which his story features
Haha I love that 😀
Oh, Al, no sympathy for the poor weeds?
A weed is only something that is in the wrong place. A rose can be a weed if it is a potato patch 🙂
Yes, I completely agree! I love dandelions in the wild (and I wouldn’t mind them so much in my lawn if they didn’t take over everything), but I don’t want them in the lawn. But grass in the garden is a weed. To steal a phrase: One man’s flower is another man’s weed. Or the opposite. 🙂
Makes me think of a phrase from a town I used to live in – and after typing it, I realised this was on AnElephant’s blog, so I can’t post it on here, I will on yours though Janet.
My apologies to AnElephant
I’ll look forward to it (I hope.) 🙂 I’d like to see you apologizing to an elephant!
Now where are the giant dogs going to pee.
As far as AnElephant is concerned, giant dogs can pee wherever they want to!
