C-Sand castle.

You possess meagre coins by mere happen-stance; you are not our equal by any measure. The blood in our vein flows through the rock foundation  of this land, yours drains through the sand. Our thoughts at dusk tint the swirling breeze of dawn. Heed these words, lest you rise to the fragrance of  your ménage descending in flames, their blood hissing at the skies. Crawl back to your hovel, engrave these words on the walls of your nugatory sand castle for offsprings yet unborn. They too must not forget; the prey who mingles with wolves will not return to roost.

  1. The rich and poor, and never the twain shall meet. Great story, very well described by the voice of the rich 🙂
    For feedback, “offspring” is already the plural form so you don’t need the “s”.

  2. Oh, wow! I love this ( though not the message)– it covers all the hatred of those who deem themselves better than others, whether by blood, race, wealth, or nationality. But you have a C there… I think the offspring’s should be ‘offspring’ or ‘your offspring’s’–I read the discussion with draliman and am not sure I understand.

  3. I did not understand who the people were and thought it could be wolves telling the people that the land was theirs. Whoever it is they are saying they are the ones who are deeply attached to the land and the people in the house are the unwelcome newcomers or usurpers.

  4. At first I thought the story was about racial hatred or maybe slavery. But then, after reading through the comments and rereading the story again, I saw clues to its true meaning (I need to pay more attention next time). Very powerful piece of writing!

  5. This took a few read-throughs for me to fully understand what was being said – I love the tone: it’s menacing, arrogant and cold; very original!

    C: I think there are a couple of errors: the way I read it (correct me if wrong!), “offspring’s” would be better as “offspring” and “least” should be “lest”. Those were just a couple of bits that I stumbled over – otherwise, the prose flowed really nicely, and I could imagine this being a much longer piece.

    I look forward to reading more from you 🙂

    1. Thank you very much for the lovely comments and corrections.
      Will get to it. The offspring one also leaves me slightly undecided, from what I have read it seems fine but I can’t say it on firm authority.
      Thank you so much for the following, followed you right back.
