Here are our words
Vox Populi- the voice of the people; popular opinion.
Blood Orange

It was vox populi that the Elders spent more time asleep than dealing with matters in hand. The old farts would stumble into their chambers, drink herbal tea with their chocolate biscuits and then not be heard from for the rest of the day.
Many felt it would take a meteor to rouse them from their field of slumber, and as things turned out, it nearly did. Well, metaphorically speaking anyway.
Some bright spark came up with the idea of taxing the sun, or perhaps one should say sunshine, before the rays began to fade. The Elders got very excited at the thought of higher revenue in the summer to compensate for shorter hours in the winter, though how   such practice could be put in place was a matter for the eggheads and Treasury Department.
The fluke of an eerie blood orange sky one morning started tongues wagging and the people, afraid their world was under attack, began to revolt.
The Elders looked around frantically for someone to blame, taking it as a sign of displeasure from the Gods, and stamped the offending suggestion REJECT in the hope it would never raise its head again.

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 recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. 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.
