First Line Friday: June 5th, 2020

Dylan Hughes is our host for the First Line Friday Challenge which alternates with Jim Adams music challenge.

Our line for this week is:

“Do you hear the people sing?”

Here’s my effort:

“Do you hear the people sing?”
“No.”
“Really? “
“Sorry. Can’t hear a thing.”
“Have you turned your hearing aid up?”
“Course! How else would I hear you?”
“But you can’t hear singing?”
“Nope.”

The armed police and military stood their ground.
The demonstration was supposed to be peaceful, but they were armed and ready in case things got ugly.
From under the canopy of umbrellas, the first chords of a familiar song rang out, and as one the crowd started to sing.

“Ah, I hear them now.”
“That’s good. Shall we…………..?”
“Of course……………..”
and the two old boys started their rendition of Singing in the Rain from the old Music Hall Days, joined by a crowd of some two thousand other pensioners much to the astonishment of the Law Enforcement detail whose brief had been so disastrously inaccurate.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
