There’s A Crowley In The Chimney

Below you will find the results of my having challenged myself for a number of days to write a short story with a beginning and middle and an end inside of 30 minutes. Here is what I came up with. I hope you like it.

There’s A Crowley In The Chimney and it’s getting quite upset

There’s A Crowley In The Chimney. So remind me; don’t forget.

There’s A Crowley In The Chimney. It’s possibly annoyed.

There’s A Crowley In The Chimney. That’s something to avoid.

So get my holy water.

And my biggest bristle broom.

I’m going to knock that Crowley across the living room.

So don’t piss inside the toolshed.

Do not overload the truck.

Insist on counting backwards while walking thru the muck.

When…

There’s A Crowley In The Chimney, your choices tend to fade

like steam beneath the handlebars

like punctured cans of RAID

like Vietcong in tunnels

like veterans on parade

There’s A Crowley In The Chimney, and the children are afraid
