100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – #41......Yorick 42


~

I am late. Beyond late. The gates have closed, the ship has left. However, here is the entry that would have been submitted to Week 41 of the 100 Word Challenge for which we were set a picture prompt. The picture is below.

Yorick 42


“Smithers! What drivel is this? Not only do you hand in your homework several days late but you deliver something that is unintelligible claptrap.”

“Sir?”

“Indulge me Smithers. What kind of nonsense is this? ‘We have here an archetype of structure, a collective memory of life seen through death, seeking new form, escaping the constraints of previous bindings.’ Smithers, you are an incorrigible arse.”

“Yes, sir.”

“And I am less than amused by your title for this exercise. More inane vacuous platitudes. Do tell, please. What I am to make of 'Yorick 42' ?”

“It is an infinite jest, sir.”
