55 - Splat!

She wasn't one to look at signs;
it was her greatest folly,
and so she hurried down the steps
of the well lit tourist trolley.

With a cheerful call-out to a friend,
she said to meet her across the street.
And that is how she came to be
smeared blood and guts on concrete.

Splat!









About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

My favorite part of this, beyond its humor, is that it reads like a limerick. It's got that same energy and a rhythm, even if it's not a perfect limerick rhythm.
