OLWG# 189- Sedition

Written for OLWG#189

He got in from GA on the evening of the 5th,

took a costly, but shabby room in Chinatown.

It afforded a short walk to the Capitol. He paid cash,

and walked it twice that night.

The first time, down 6th

the second time, 7th

left on Pennsylvania for a little less than half a mile.

He had to find his way to the Grant Memorial

his designated rendezvous point.

Alone, that evening, at Oyamel he

rehearsed the plan, in his head, for the next day

over and over again;





he thought that it might work. Even if not, what’d he care, he had been paid well.

This week’s prompts were:

  1. wind carries both the bad news and the good
  2. bury them naked
  3. Chinatown

  1. The worst part of that calamity was that I doubt they were paid at all. If they were paid, you might be able to call them off. When they do it for free, the only thing left is to shoot them or infuse what’s left of their brains with reality!

  3. I’ve got a Modern Nursery Rhyme I can send you. I don’t want to make it public just yet…
    The morning paper offers some relief. Some action a little late, at least a finality.
    I think ‘He’ should be made to pay for the damages.

    The truth, in the middle is that some things should just have never been allowed. There is a reason the Dodo bird is extinct, it couldn’t fly.

    “The dodo is an extinct flightless bird that was endemic to the island of Mauritius, east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean.”
