A Drabble – Drabble!

“Still nothing to do with me.”

“Okay, you oiks! You rabble!

Let’s get to business;

we are going to write a drabble!”

They looked at me

with a glaze to their eyes,

questions on their lips,

and with a thought process clogging up the CPU.

“It’s a short story.” I explained – putting them out of their misery.

“One hundred words – no more, no less.”

They visibly relaxed. Most of them knew a hundred words.

“And to spice it up a little…”

They paused in their movements.

“… none of the words can be repeated.”

You could have dropped a pin and heard its screams as it fell.
