(Author’s note: National Novel Writing Month is in full swing. I’m at about 17,500 words out of 50,000. I am going to be spending a lot of time coming up with marathon writing sessions, but I believe I am doing well. I now need to work on finding an editor to help with starting out this new venture. Oh well, we’ll see what happens. Anyhow, here’s today’s Fictioneers!)
The Jester Is In A Cast
by Miles H. Rost
“I don’t know about you, but Bob Dylan absolutely has to be the Jester.”
“How do you figure?”
“Take a look at history. Elvis’s music was big, until Bob Dylan came along. And Bob’s music was the big thing until the Rolling Stones came along.”
“What does Elvis and the Stones have to do with it?”
“Elvis was the King. The Jester stole the King’s crown. Bob Dylan took over after Elvis went through the military. As far as the Stones? Their 1967 album is ‘Their Satanic Majesties Request’.”
“So, Mick Jagger is Satan?”
“Don McLean was on to something.”
I’m not sure who was who, king, queen, or jester, but I’m sure Don, Mick, and Bob will soon be on their own train for the coast; just not as father, son, and holy ghost. 🙂 Fun dialogue.
I wonder is music fiction and are the stars commercial stooges?
Entertaining story, Miles! I do love American Pie. Thanks for the reminder. I’ve listened to it several times tonight. 🙂
Cute “fanfic” Miles.
