Lemon Queens – Flash Fiction

Morning Geese

They call themselves the Lemon Queens, bitter as a lemon and twice as nasty.  Don’t get me wrong. I love lemons. I even eat the rind. But those two with their cursing, spitting and hostility give lemons a bad name.

I have no intention of kneeling to these queens to pacify them. That’s just what they want. That’s just what they’re not going to get.

We arrested them last night.  They hurled a trash can through a store window.  Their lawyer insisted they were peaceful protesters. Then someone bailed them out. Now someone will have to arrest them again.

Linked to Carrot Ranch’s August 27 Flash Fiction Challenge where Charli Mills offers the theme of “Lemon Queens” for these 99-word stories.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.
