They all stood looking at the man in the spotlight with his sly smile basking in the attention of the crowd. He made statements calling them promises, comments that were nothing more than wisecracks, jokes that were hurtful, not funny. Still, they raised their hands and cheered knowing that if they showed their true feelings they would have to leave this place they called home.

Ooh…I love this. You made me want more. Well done! Annie at ~McGuffy’s Reader~
\O/ Thank you, Annie. You have made me happy.
So touching! I’d never be able to tell a story in 3 lines, and certainly not one as awesome as that. Go you!
It isn’t as hard as it might seem. I find it harder to write long fiction. I am glad you liked the story. Thank you for the encouragement.
A great story and an excellent commentary on our times!
Thanks, Josie. I was trying to be subtle but the subject wouldn’t allow it. 🙂
Fabulous and a point well made.
I was trying be low key but it wouldn’t stay that way.
Nice take on the prompt.
