Dot

100 words on ‘Dot’:

The Punctuators met to elect their leader to the House of Languages. A small but a vocal lot, these devices of disambiguation were.

‘I convey a powerful emotion. Wonder what life would be without wonder!’ was the rhetoric from Exclamation Mark.

‘Can you imagine the course of human progress but for the inquiring minds? Inquiry and introspection, I bring,’ Question Mark advanced his candidature.

‘I may only be a dot. But expressions are useless without commitment and logical closure – you’ve me,’ averred Stop.

Didn’t much impress them until: ‘And don’t forget, my friends, I carry you on my head!’

End

    That is the problem, isn’t it? The horse at the front of carriage thinks it is the leader. I wonder who is the dot among the politician and the people who elect him

    This is quite a potent metaphor, deceptive in its simplicity, yet potent in its meaning. I really enjoy your stories, they tend to throw the world on its head (or was that the dot? 😕 )
