This is a response to a Flash Fiction prompt from ‘The Last Post on WordPress’ ~
Prompt ~ DECISIONS, DECISIONS
How are you more likely to make an important decision — by reasoning through it, or by going with your gut?
Personally I tend to tailor my decisions to the situation I am making the decision about, as I humorously describe in my little piece of poetic Flash Fiction below.
THE HEAD MAN’S DECISION
by John Yeo
I made up my mind to take action
Entirely fed up with the situation
I decided to make a firm decision
To resolve the ongoing friction.
The moment passed in a flash
My finger was on the button.
Do you realise what you are doing?
Have you thought of the side effects?
I stopped and my finger hovered,
I had thought the whole thing through,
The good that would come of the effect.
I firmly returned to my intention.
I thought of the change this would bring
To the future of my head appearance
I looked in the mirror, raised the can
Then firmly pressed the button.
A jet of hairspray solved the problem.
