AnElephantCant pretend he’s a wee dude
He is huge when he stands up to his full height
But though you only reach his knees
Remember he’s just like the trees
His bark is much worse than his bite
Once again it is Friday Fictioneer time.
Where Redwood Rochelle towers over a forest of fertile fablers on a weekly basis.
And AnElephant is rooted to the spot as usual.
The idea is to write a very short story, circa 100 words, based on this picture prompt (below).
This is such an easy position to defend.
If they think they can sneak up and take us by surprise, they’ve got another think coming.
We’ll hear them stumbling through the trees long before they see us.
They won’t be able to hold their battle lines, they’ll be all over the place.
Our generals reckon their generals will realise how hopeless their position is and turn right around and go home.
We’ll win the battle without a shot being fired and the war will be over in a couple of weeks.
And we can forget we ever heard of Shiloh.
