Microfiction Monday # 60--A Grave Matter

Two boys tip old tombstones,
Spray graffiti in the graveyard,
Jump on
Two graves.
Rotted pine coffins collapse.
Now they hold four 
Not two.

Nothing like a little gruesomeness to get that Holiday Feeling going. Thanks to the G-Man and friends for getting me to play this game over at Stony River


  1. The ultimate in immediate retribution. Nice job!

  2. YIKES! What creepy-good fun this 140 is!


  3. Wow, like stackable storage bins for people.

  4. Serves them right. Enjoy your week.

  5. Ooh yes I've seen desecrated graves, so yes it does seem fitting LOL! :O)

  6. Hope those two boys learned a valuable lesson that day! Enjoyed your MM this week.

  7. serves them right!

    (my MFM has the same title...maybe great minds think alike?)

  8. This is just way too much fun. Glad this wasn't too bloodthirsty for everyone. When I was a small child back in the fifties, I'd help my grandparents tend the family gravestones and this little piece comes from my grandmother warning me never to step on the sunken graves, as they were from the old days when people were buried in wooden coffins,and the ground could give way over the rotted wood. I think now she may just have been teaching me not to run around like a wild tasmanian devil in the cemetery, but at the time it spooked the bejeezis out of me.

    Thanks all for stopping by, and for making my day with your own MM's.

  9. We reap what we sow and they found that out the hard way..... :O)

  10. That's what they get-nice take this week. Truly original!

  11. If they did give way, it would explain the old expression about having one foot in the grave.

    All right, I'll be going now.

  12. Seems they got their comeuppance...or should that be come-downance?

    Such a desecration took place in a nearby city here not too long ago...but the perpetrators weren't found.

  13. Poetic justice if I see one. Brilliant but morbid though!

  14. haunting mm,
    well done.

  15. Could ode to poetic justice?
