It's Flash Fiction Friday time again. This week the starter sentence had options.
"I/He/She/It/They/(place name here) had to kick out the back window to escape."
I chose to once again poke fun at some sacred American icons. Not sure why. Maybe it was because I was banned for life from Disney World back in 1977 for smoking pot on the monorail with members of Black Oak Arkansas and crew. But I think it is just because I really love Mickey and friends. I grew up with them and this is my way of letting them know that I know movie stars are human too. They have the same needs we all do, even if they only have four fingers on each hand.
Duck & Mouse
Duck had to kick out the back window to escape.
As Mickey and his henchmen poured in the front gate.
"The Duck has to pay", Mickey declared.
"Get Him. Kill him. Before it's too late."
Donald thought he was clever, so clever he smiled
"Mickey you're an idiot. Minnie loved it. No way it was rape."
Just then Mickey ran into that back room with a view
Saw Duck on the window balanced, ready to screw
Dug deep in his pocket for some ammo to reload
To avenge Minnie's honor, killing Duck before he hit the road.
Duck just cackled and flipped Mouse the bird
"Tell me something Mickey, just what good sir, what is the good word?"
"You defiled poor Minnie, your ass is mine now"
"You loser, you clown, you feather brained turd."
But Duck did not hear him, he had leapt to the ground
Flew the coop, took a powder
Falling four floors tends to make for a very ugly sound.
Mickey rushed the window, still hoping to shoot
Leaned out, looked down and saw it was moot.
For Duck was sprawled flat, splat, like a collapsed top hat
Stone dead on the concrete, expired........ nightie night.
"Well my work here is done", Mickey declared with puffed chest.
Went home, grabbed a beer, headed to bed for some rest
Instead found his woman, the mouse of his dreams
In bed with that damn Goofy and ecstatic in mid scream.
As You Were............................
