Pop Goes the Weasel

Writing Challenge: February 5, 2018

Prompt: Write a dark narrative using a line from a nursery rhyme as your opening

 

All around the mulberry bush the monkey chased the weasel. The monkey thought it was all for fun. Pop, goes the weasel.

 

You pursued me with a persistence you believed to be flattery.

Around and around we went-

You chasing me-

A playful monkey:

A playful, manic, monkey.

You chasing me-

A scared, linking weasel.

I was running- scared.

Around and around we went-

You said it was for fun,

You said I should enjoy it.

Around and around you chased me-

Until I snapped- Pop!-

And I attacked back.
