100 Word Stories

time for chips and peas

10 April 2019

There once was a man named Caleb.

He never wore anything tailored.

The mind was his thing

For books made him ping

And games were his ultimate favourite.

 

“Now, Caleb,” said he;

To himself, not to you or to me.

“You must find the answer

To that tricky tricky number

Of the crossword that you cannot unsee!”

 

“Was it the south or was it the north?

Or somewhere else that day of the fourth?

This is the shore

And that is the moor…

Aha! It’s Costa Rica. Of course!”

 

Caleb was pleased.

He walked away happy

With a smile and with ease.

Another game played, another plot flayed,

It was now time for his chips and his peas.

100 Word Stories is a weekly series featuring flash fiction by Mackerel and photographs by Daniel Tan.
