Friday Fictioneers #19

7 Nov

I struggled with the Friday Fictioneers prompt this week.  Let me know if it works!

They return in droves

The MTV Show ‘Pimp My Ride’ is in town.  It is here as a guest of the Mayor who wants to lure the young people back with a promise of fame.

It works.

They return in droves, dressed in city fashions that seem out of place in this backwater.

They return to retrieve their cars from beneath tarpaulins, behind sheds, ditches at the back of the far paddocks.

Caught up in the bright lights of America and the promise of being broadcast to an international audience, the youngsters miss the irony; it is not just the cars that are being pimped.

    They’re being taken for a ride. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

    Oooh, that’s suddenly dark. Cleverly done.

    That didn’t end how I thought it would. Pretty dark metaphor – I like it.
