Decamot of the month

31 Aug 2019-At Cross Purposes

At Cross Purposes

Inspired by the following Decamot items: wood-pigeon, axle, lumberjack, umbrella, zither, youth hostel, bridle path, Iraq, tai chi master, ferry

During a car journey, the passenger is reading a newspaper or listening to the news headlines on the radio. The driver is doing his best to respond but needs to keep an eye on the road ahead.

These LGBTG people have stolen the rainbow as their symbol. It’s appalling. It’s an afront to people called Iris. We have always revered the connection with Greek mythology. How dare they purloin such a beautiful creation of nature. IRIS was the goddess of the rainbow, the messenger of the Olympian gods. Now kids called Iris will be subjected to mindless bullying by their classmates joking about their sexuality. How dare they. What is the world coming to? Seats on buses reserved for LGBGT passengers only? Are you listening to me or that satnav woman?

Kids will always find something. It’s human nature sadly. All part. of growing up. Rainbow coalition in South Africa. worked pretty well. Language evolves. I agree the LGBGT lobby. is all pervasive. You can’t pick up a paper these days. without some reference to gay pride. Even, when it has nothing to do. with the story. Local fireman is praised for rescuing a cat from an ancient 300-foot-tall Oak Tree. The cat belonged. to an LGBTG couple. Turn right then left at Compton Avenue and the destination. will be on the right.

On the return journey, the driver has his latest Decamot on his mind and is thinking his thoughts, not speaking at all …. Except for the last five words

Will the Conservatives get away with it? They don’t deserve to. They couldn’t spell democracy let alone understand the concept. Wednesday I must be in GPS. Decamot needs a boost. Perhaps Arsenal will prove the sceptics wrong. Pigs might fly. Why does the BBC not challenge the outrageous assertion of extreme Remainers that no deal means going off the cliff edge? Armageddon my arse. Released from from servitude to flex our wings and fly would be more appropriate. Content should be king with so many platforms to choose from like Amazon Netflix. Must be Possible to use the short story format. Sorry sweetie, you were saying?

I was going to suggest ten words for your next month’s Decamot but if you are not interested …

Of course I’m interested – I’m all ears – go one surprise me

Woodpigeon, axle, lumberjack, umbrella, zither, youth hostel, bridle path, Iraq, tai chi master, ferry!

For the rest of the journey home both kept their thoughts to themselves. Decamot is a competitive game.
