FF – Absolute Power – How To Handle Those Little Issues

Here is my story for Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle. This week’s photo was contributed by C.E. Ayr.

I couldn’t really think of anything this week. Very busy with work and then I spent the evening on a long walk so time got away from me!

“And so, children, the blast of sound from the speakers blows the sand off the beach, thus leading to loss of land mass.”

“Sir, my mummy said it’s to do with The Climate Change, and…”

“FALSE NEWS! Go and stand in the corner!”

“Yes, Sir sniffle sniffle.”



“We can’t have this, Mr Trimp. I know your third cousin is a big shot in the States, but even so… if nothing else, your bright orange skin is scaring the kids.”

“Hey cuz, I have a problem needs “handling”… Headmaster annoyance… yes, make it look like an accident again…”

    Just a little injection of bleach should take care of it.

    Sounds about right. Oh if we only had someone to call…

    like they say, birds of the same feathers…

    Wouldn’t it be great to ‘accidentally’ change the paint stuff in the spray booth from orange to green?

    Sounds like someone needs to peel that orange skin of his back.

    Haha! Trimp strikes again.

    I think you have an excellent grasp of American politics.


  18. May 24, 2020 at 4:52 am

    Trumped again. Well done!


  19. May 24, 2020 at 9:08 am

    Makes me think of the video where Mr.Trimp’s third cousin visits a children’s class and panic breaks out. If only the average American voter could be as smart as the kids…


    • May 25, 2020 at 3:58 pm

      The kids know more than we realise…

    But does he have white circles on his orange face? That’s the true sign of a Trimp.


  21. May 24, 2020 at 1:22 pm

    It’s almost as though they’re a seperate race, orange aliens. Very amusing.


  22. May 25, 2020 at 6:36 am

    Time to crack open the bleach…

      To be fair, it would work. Because the virus needs a living host…

    Wonderfully quirky and funny. You conjure up the normality of the classroom scene then turn it on its head ! Well done.

    Even punishment is back in the form of fines, but not for this interesting story
