Scandal


“I don’t know how a reporter would ever understand a politician. Your job is supposed to be about finding the truth and enlightening people. Right? A politician’s job is about hiding the truth and fooling people. Right? ”
Dan Groat, An Enigmatic Escape: A Trilogy

The Drabble web site publishes poems/stories of less than 100 words so I thought I would give it a go and submit the words below. Thanks Violet. (VioletLenz) for bringing this site to my attention.

A mousy reporter
Searching for cheese.
Sniffs the air.
Scurries forward.
Tastes the pungent aroma
Of acid and vinegar.
Salivates over its sharp bite.
Returns to his hole
Replete.
Another politician's
Year book
Revealed.
