Crickets

Copyright Shaktiki Sharma

It doesn’t take much to set me off.  Cut into my lane when I am driving and I’ll unleash my inner Mad Max. Put your shopping trolley in front of mine before the cash register, I’ll make you pay. 

I have nothing against people, black, white or multicoloured just don’t breathe my air.

That old crone had no right to move past me.  So I stuck a foot out discreetly.  She squealed all the way down the escalator.

I chuckled when she screamed “I know which insect did this.”

If I ever transform back, they are getting crickets from me.

  1. Dear Subroto,

    So he'd transformed into a cricket? That gives new meaning to the phrase "I'd love to be a bug on the wall." Nicely done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  4. Nasty, with the ability to transform? Sounds like the origins of a super villain.

    1. "With great powers..." At the moment I'd say he is just bugged. Thanks for reading and commenting Rommy.

    1. But he does not discriminate, he is truly an equal opportunity practitioner. Thanks for your comments Sandra.

  6. This is a nasty one. I can't just imagine the horrors someone with this much power and lack of restraint can unleashed on the world... All right, I will stop imagining and just cringe a little.

    The voice is perfect--mean, mean, mean.
