Friday Fictioneers: Making Hay

hay-bales-sandra-cMr Safdar won the election from his constituency and became a member of parliament of the government in power.

Instead of using his position to alleviate the suffering of the poor masses, he decided to make hay while the sun shone. He would pocket commissions from deals that went to the government for approval and was particularly satisfied with the deal to import luxury BMWs into the country.

A few months later as he returned to his palatial home, his car was hit by a speeding car head on. He was killed on the spot. The driver of the BMW was taken into custody.

  1. LOVED your use of the metaphor about making hay while the sun shone, and then the poetic justice at the end. Don’t you sometimes wish the world was run by writers — we see things much clearer than most.
