Random paragraph from a story I’m working on

The Department of Sustainability loomed over Paul Crowley as he tried to muster enough enthusiasm to go through its revolving doors. This was a brand new building, and award winning building, it was a state-of-the-art example of modern construction. And it could cast gloom in any direction even on the brightest of days. Soon it would swallow him up for yet another day during which it would try to digest him, make him dissolve into ooze that is the bureaucracy. And then it would shit him out at the end of the day so that he could have the privilege of experiencing the torture all over again for each subsequent day of the coming week – and then the following week. And then…his life stretched out before him. It didn’t look good.

‘Fuck it!’

Crowley took a deep breath, squared his shoulders and then ambled slowly into the building.


About George Fripley
I am a writer who enjoys writing humour, satire, poetry and sometimes a bit of philosophy. I live in Perth, Western Australia and occasionally get a poem or article published. It's all good fun! I have two books available for unwary readers, Grudges, Rumours and Drama Queens- The Civil Servant's Manual (This contains all that anybody could ever want to know about why government runs so slowly) and More Gravy Please! - the Politician's Handbook. (available through Amazon). Real name Peter Tapsell...just started off writing under a pseudonym and kept going.
