FOWC with Fandango — Ostracize


It’s March 19, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “ostracize.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.

    Ostracized Old Sam Adams Dies

    Sam Adams
    Was a lonely old man
    Felt isolated from society
    Felt ostracized.

    Had no real friends anymore
    Everyone he loved had died.

    Except for a granddaughter
    Who had killed his so,
    Who he hated
    With a passionate intensity.

    He lived alone
    But was losing his mind
    Day by day.

    He would go for a walk
    Sit on a bench
    Lost in thought
    Watching the world walk by.

    Seeing the young woman
    He felt the stirring of lustful desire
    Long-buried in his old worn out
    90-year-old body.

    He stood up
    Smiled at a young woman
    She smiled back at him.

    Talked with him
    And he felt something

    A prick of a needle
    As she injected him
    With the poison
    That killed him.

    He asked,
    why she did that?
    With his dying words.

    She said,

    You don’t remember me?
    That I am your only heir
    To your millions?

    He smiled, remembering her
    As the drug-crazed sociopathic granddaughter
    Who had stolen his son’s wealth
    Before killing him in a suspicious accident.

    And died
    On the park bench.
    She left him there
    For the authorities to find.

    She went home practicing her speech
    For the police,
    Who soon came to her door
    With the sad news.
