A short story …

for Friday Fictioneers.

Will the Warbler was entertaining the crowd.

Come fly with me, let’s fly…

Suddenly a gust of wind launched his sheet music into the sky.

Unperturbed he decided to sing an appropriate song.

Pack up all my cares and woes, here I go singing low, bye-bye blackbird…

A slick of bird-poo splattered  his shoulder.

And-a now, the end is near and so I face…

His loudspeaker suddenly let out a deafening pop and died.

 

Pete the Pint stood in the doorway of the pub, a broad grin across his chubby red face.

“Don’t you come in here Will, the beer ‘ll probably run out!”

    I’m glad it was just his speaker that died, with his luck! 🙂

    Gotta give him an A for effort as well as for going with the flow and adapting his lyrics as needed… I do, however, understand Pete…

    He should have switched to “It’s raining pennies from heaven…” Be worth a try, anyway. 😉 Well done.

    Dear Keith,

    Oh poor Will. In his case there just wasn’t a way. 😉 You made me chuckle as always.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

      He will, and there’ll be three more just as soon as he un-pops his loudspeaker!

    Ah, yes. The eternal (infernal) optimist. You sing wonderfully, Keith. Well done writing and narrating. 🙂

    I have heard the nursey rhyme- “pop goes the weasel” 🙂

    Nice sketch, Keith. If he goes in the pub and the beer runs out, his name will change from being Will the Warbler to Will the Barred.
