TLT: Standing in Line

Photo Prompt: Mike Wilson

He’d been standing in line, waiting his turn, for far longer than he cared to remember. The sign continued to blink idly in the distance; the column shuffled slowly forwards. Bureaucracy, it seemed, wasn’t just a problem in the land of the living.

This post is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales challenge.

  1. Ha! Cracking last line there Louise. Ever seen the old film A Matter of Life and Death? There’s a whole lot of heavenly bureaucracy in that too. Great three lines 🙂

      1. It’s old, a little hammy, but still a great story. Though you’ll be lucky to catch it these days. A great read Louise 🙂
