Betwixt and Between


MICROFICTION

A very short short story!

BETWIXT AND BETWEEN

I do wish Lance wasn't bi-sexual!
Life is so hard when one's gay!
Rory's so green he's not noticing
Lance is having a hat-and-dress day!

A Gerald Gee Cartoon
HEADLIGHTS
I'd love to have a bosom that lit up in the dark!
Imagine! Rinkly strolling after midnight in the park!
I could turn my beams on straight ahead
The blackness would not lead to dread;
I'd stride out sure of foot instead
And never miss my mark!
*
No tripping over stones for me, or bumping into trees!
I could leap around the bushes quite unfettered at my ease.
My headlights would light up the scene,
My way ahead and where I'd been,
And all the spaces in between!
So give them to me! Please!

So if they play parlor games, Lance can switch sides to make it fair! Nice take!
