Unmanned – Day Seven of the 10 Days of Flash Challenge

This is Day Seven of Leone Ross’ 10 Days of Flash Challenge, running on her Facebook page. Do go have a look at what’s going on there. Lots of fun. Great for honing your writing skills.

Today’s challenge was a super short 55 word flash piece in response to a photograph. There are five to choose from. Being politically incorrect and having completely run out of the milk of human kindness this morning, I chose this one:


“Hold on. Are you…”


“I asked for a headless horseman. That was my fantasy! Not…”

“All the horsemen were taken. Sorry.”

“So, I get a headless homeless man instead?”

“’Fraid so. Again, DreamMaker Corporation™ apologizes.”

“What the fuck?”

“Just-in-time Inventory Management. It’s a bitch, isn’t it?”

“But… You do have a cock, right?”

    Is it inappropriate to laugh? I definitely did. Maid the story pop into your head with ease or did you have to look at the photo for a while to settle on this?
