So here is the picture for this week:

“… after that, he had to make his way all down the parade to the West Pier” – Brighton Rock, Graham Greene.

~*~*~*~

He sat on the ledge and saw the humans milling around in dozens. Some were in the water while others were enjoying themselves on the beach. To his wise eyes, this all looked foolish. Why were they willing to take the risk of falling sick and dying just because they craved fun?

He briefed his team that after his observations, saying that there was no hope for these people. After that, he had to make his way all down the parade to the West Pier, where they were waiting to pick him up. If people saw him walking down that sandy beach, they dismissed him as just another pigeon looking for something to eat. Little did they know that in the guise of harmless birds, he and his team were planning to invade this planet and rid it of these stupid humans. Who weren’t fit to live here at all.

  1. A wasp just stung me
    Can you tell who I am
    That I’m writhing in pain
    I’m on the promenade
    Just there
    The woman who had a glorious day
    Bringing her baby to the ocean for the first time
    We saw fish
    Tasted salt water
    Watched the boats sway with the breeze
    Do you see me
    Holding my baby with my throbbing arm
    I was trying to create memories
    Have the perfect day
    Then
    I was stung
    By the ultimate party pooper
    He could have minded his business
    But instead
    He stung me
    And now, my perfect day is ruined

    100 words, based on a true story lol
