Don’t Mock Me!

you call me a fool,

laugh at my hopes, now you sit

head in hands feeling

the weight of your displeasure

seeing all my dreams come true.

Think Differently

If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking.

The After Party (Fiction)

After the fiasco at homecoming, the principal declared a moratorium on huge parties on campus. To make matters worse, he downgraded senior class prom to the school gymnasium, with a meagre menu of pizza and chocolate chip cookies. After slumbering there, the students met up for an after party bash.

House Party (Fiction)

Henry and his wife Ann just moved to the area about a month ago, so they were delightfully surprised to receive their first party invitation. Ann started feeling nervous as Henry read the particulars, realizing the party was in two days. She immediately shouted, “WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR?” and suggested they buy new outfits. Henry quickly rebuffed that idea, reminding Ann of her custom-built closet full of clothes.

The day had come and Ann was excited to finally have someplace to wear her cute little black dress and pink shoes. As she applied makeup and curled her hair, Henry sat in his slacks and polo shirt watching the game and enjoying the breeze from their oscillating fan.

As soon as they arrived at the party, Ann was confused by the guest’s attire. The men were in double-breasted suits standing beside their wives, who wore elegantly fitted dresses. The hosts approached, visibly disappointed, and asked, “Did you not understand the theme Vanderbilt House Party?” Henry glanced at the invitation again and realized his oversight. “Oh, I thought that was your name since the party is at your house,” he explained. Embarrassed by laughter in the background, Ann simply turned and walked out the door.
