Weekend Writing Prompt — The Throne

“A penny for your thoughts,” the wife of the deposed king said.

“I was looking through the doorway of past mistakes and the tumultuous times that led to being dethroned and to the loss of my empire.”

“You’re putting the emphasis on the wrong thing, my once and former king,” she said. “Your enemies infringed upon your power and left you shitting upon the fragrant throne you’re sitting on now.”

(Exactly 70 words)


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt, where the word is “empire.” Image credit: Nancy Ohanian.

Also for these daily prompts: My Vivid Blog (penny), Ragtag Daily Prompt (doorway of past), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (tumultuous), The Daily Spur (emphasis), Your Daily Word Prompt (infringe), and Word of the Day Challenge (fragrant).
