The Super Postman and other 100 word vignettes

The Super Postman

In order that the mail be delivered

Village people unlock everything

Undo everything tied

And leave nothing crossed,

In this way the mailman

Will come unimpeded out of the mountains

That lay beyond the horizon

Bearing the News of the World.

The mailman often makes a way in the sea, a path in the mighty waters, and brings forth chariot and horse, army and warrior; they go forth, they rise on high, they are distinguished, star like and quick. He also makes a bold way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

 

No Quarter Given

A jealous lover

Is to make sure his rival

Will not possess his love object

By having his rival’s

Penis tied in a knot

And his scrotum squeezed

When they get too close,

As if by magic!

And if this rival’s hand or foot causes further sin, it will be cut off and thrown away. And if this rival’s eyes causes further sin, they will be torn out and thrown away. It is better for the rival to live life lame and blind than to be thrown dead into a bog of ash and quicksand.

 

Sevenses

If an ancient rapscallion spun

Seven times clockwise

And seven times clockwise

And did not pull out dizzy,

There was a chance

That none of

The Seven Deadly Sins

Would have shown up this day.

He was once a Spirit, who sat on a throne in heaven. And he had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald. From the throne came flashes of lightning, and rumblings and peals of thunder, and before the throne were burning seven torches of fire, which are the seven deadly spirits.

 

Outages

Should a ring feel

As if tightening on the finger

It is a sure sign

That something is trying to get out,

Thus the malicious ring

Is closing the exit

And it is a matter of urgency

That whatever it is must be let out.

A false balance is an abomination but a just weight is a delight. When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with the humble is wisdom. The integrity of the upright guides them, but the crookedness of the treacherous destroys them. Riches do not profit in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death.

 

Born Naked Again

John changed his name to James

Because the encrypted name John

Was hacked one day

And all the internet evils

Befell him

Reducing him to ‘password’,

And to stay alive

He has kept the name James secret.

Nothing is covered up that can be revealed, or hidden that can be known. Whatever is typed in the dark is read in the light, and what is whispered in private rooms shall be proclaimed on the internet. And no user is hidden from sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of whoever needs to see.

 

Hops the Matter

So that visiting supporters

Could protect themselves

From the home team’s evil spirits,

Each would pour beer onto scarves

And wrap them around another neck

To be worn during the match

Demonstrating the bonds between them

And intoxicating them besides.

All have woe. All haves sorrow. All have strife. All are complaining. All have wounds without cause. All have redness of eyes. Those who tarry long over beer; those who get drunk on home brews. In the end beer bites like a serpent and stings like a bee. Drinker’s eyes see strange things, and their minds imagine perverse things.
