Battle lines…

“Defy me?” says Routine. “Try something new?” asks Habit.

“Yep,” cries Rebellion. “Absolutely!” answers Adventure.

Lines are drawn, this could get ugly. Mediocrity and Excitement peek out from their respective corners.  Wont and Want draw weapons….

Fate steps in as referee… demands to see their battle plans…

… and laughs…

“How about this for a suggestion?” says she. “Admit defeat.”

Rebellion and her cohorts cry out in protest determined to break the siege. Routine and his band stiffen belligerently…

“Think about it….” says Fate, a wise and knowing smile upon her face.

“Adventure will never admit defeat, “says Habit. “Rebellion always pushes the bounds…”

“Routine always tries to win,” protests Adventure. “Habit will never surrender quietly.”

“Exactly,” says Fate, looking just a little smug.

    Sue Vincent starts the week off with something very amusing, while at the same time, very contemplation-worthy. Click on over to the Daily Echo and read for yourself. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! Clever, clever Sue! 🙂

    Clever. Sounds like you could build a theme from such personified prose. Greed and Charity, Sloth and Frugal, Lazy and Anxious…

  13. That was really great! I haven’t read such a good allegory since Everybody, Anybody, Somebody, and Nobody! Definitely passing this on to some writer friends, thanks Sue!
