Thieves! They prey on all of us, purloining our possessions, trashing our dignity, creating a climate of fear. I know that some of them are in need of a fix or are desperately hungry or maybe they are both in need of a fix and desperately hungry. Whatever. They shouldn’t do it. Half the time they sell the loot down at their local pub for a fraction of what it’s worth. It’s criminal.

As for me, I’ve got a bloody big gun. And a sharp and shiny bayonet. And if someone doesn’t return my horse pretty damn soon, I’ll start using them.

  1. Horse thieves also… deserve to be hanged by the blazing fire…

    Look, if I got it wrong, please forgive me, but it seems to me you’re talking about politicians.

  3. ‘I’ve got a bloody big gun’ – fantastic.

    I love the second paragraph where you get a real sense if his voice, the first paragraph seems more detached to me, and it made me smile

  5. Dear Patrick,

    Bastards indeed. Damn their eyes! I like how you stepped outside the box. Good story.

    Nice take on the prompt Patrick, hope the horse is returned in one piece.

    Like the humor in “It’s criminal.” And the irony of your threat. I’m just glad I’m not the one who took your horse. Well done.

  8. Hannah says:

    That’s determination!

  9. Sarah Ann says:

    LOL. Great twist at the end. I hope he gets his horse back soon, or someone’s going to suffer.

I'd love to read what you think ...
