To Hunger on Certain Streets

Post by zcarter80 » Sat Oct 02, 2010 7:35 am

Though his mental acuity was constantly in question he was no fool.

He knew, or at least could imagine what would happen to him once the authorities found him out.

If not for the vice that drove him here, if only he were smarter like his friends & Neighbors he wouldn’t be terrified, shaking behind the counter of Mr. Hooper’s general store.

His blue fur, Glistened with thick spatters of crimson blood, fragments of bone.

He mumbled as he rocked back and forth.

“All he had to do was give me cookies.”

He sobbed,

“Me truly am a monster.”

One of the greatest drabbles ever to grace us with its presence. The Larry Bird of drabbles.

I would've picked another basketball player, but alas, I'm NOT a black guy. Sigh.

Whoa there Outfield, According to the ladies your black where it counts. All the Drabble love is truly appreciated. hopefully i will write something good enough to make it to the big show. Until then may the many tentacled god of the forums expectorate its visceral fluids upon us all and extrude it's leavings upon our enemies!

I like the idea, but I think the voice is a bit off. Things like "mental acuity" and "authorities" feel too big to tell a story about the cookie monster.

good point. but i thought it made him seem more like he was playing up his lack of intelligence so people wouldn't expect too much of him. but a valid point none the less.
