Here we are another week. This time we’re gathered at a virtual puppet show. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented artist and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We are the Friday Fictioneers, and the challenge this week, and every week, is for each of us to write an original story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt provided for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Luther Siler. Thanks, Luther.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box. The link for the other stories this week is as follows:
Genre: Humor Fiction

PERFORMER’S LAMENT By P.S. Joshi
Depression is setting in, and I’m worn thin. I’d like to think, just once, I’m controlling my own destiny.
People say I was made for this life, that it fits me like a hand in a glove. What do they know?
Every day is the same. There are no real choices. At day’s end, I’m cast aside like an old rag.
I’m forced to perform by those controlling me. They get paid, but not me. I don’t see any money. What’s with that?
What would happen, I wonder, if I went on strike? But are they worried? Not a bit.
