PROMPT #192

It’s an image prompt.

There is no restriction on length of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap.

Holding it with all his might

Lest that it may break free from his grasp


This is all that he has earned in his life


A little house to call his own

An umbrella of security to guard against the rainy days

A few meager possessions, threadbare and poorly


But he had his pride intact


Pride he had in his impeccable honesty


And a reputation that wasn’t tarnished by temptation

~*~*~*~*~

Last week I played devil’s advocate, ridiculing the virtues of honesty. So it’s just fitting that this week we take pride in threadbare respectability of honest living.
