The Victor


Donny had never really taken life to seriously.  He had been the class clown in high school and coasted through college with an art degree which he admitted was based on work that was derivative at best, or just throwing colour randomly on canvas.  He got himself a job at a gallery by connections with a girl he had dated in college and lost it about as fast as he lost her.  So how could he now be standing in front of a cheering crowd as their mayor? He had only registered as a candidate as a drunken dare.

One thought on “The Victor

  1. I never dreamed such jokers could win such vital positions. Though, I’m thinking we citizens need to recall what it means to serve our nation and it can be more than military service. Citizenship is engagement. A well-written flash of inspiration.
