Revolt over the Revolting
She sat with
once an ally,
now the adversary
in a visual duel.
The object of contention? Peas.
“I HATE peath!”
The three-year-old declared, defiant.
This is my entry in the Trifecta weekend challenge, which follows:
For the weekend challenge, we’re asking you to write exactly 33 words about rebellion and/or revolt. Interpret it as you will, just keep it to 33 words. They arrived at the challenge based on this background:
The Decemberist Revolt took place during the month of December in 19th century Russia when 3,000 soldiers protested Nicholas I’s assumption of the throne on the first day of his reign. He quickly squashed the revolt, but it impacted his regime as he went on to rule with an iron fist.
I decided to write a different take on rebellion. I think peas are disgusting. And, if you’ve ever tried to feed them to a toddler who doesn’t like them, that’s traumatic for all involved. Talk about a tense stand-off! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it :)
