Zombies by the Sea – Excerpt 13

Zombies by the Sea – Excerpt 13

  The Mayor, himself was just pulling up his trousers in the projection booth of the Cinema he owned, after giving Mavis the usherette the sexual frolics he had promised her. The Mayor never reneged on those promises, despite the sometimes difficult consequences. He was once again late for the Council meeting, he would cite unavoidable delays, satisfying the needs of the local populace.

The needs of course, that only his worship the Mayor was aware of, he never confided in the rest of the council, although they all had an inkling that he was up to no good. If he wasn’t philandering he was involved in some other double-dealing.

Ten minutes later he rushed in to the meeting, full of apologies for his absence, ‘Council business, don’t ‘ya know had to be dealt with urgently!’ no one bothered to query what the business was because they knew they would be met by a string of excuses all more farcical than the one before. So now no one bothered to ask. They just sat resignedly until he was ready.

‘Can we get down to business?’ said an irate Sanjay ‘ If this is to go ahead, I need to be clear on the dates.’ ‘I think! stated the Mayor, ‘That it needs to be in the school holidays, so that we can attract families, that way everyone gets a bigger slice of the pie!’ and surprisingly the council agreed that for once the Mayor made perfect sense.

  1. An excellent civil servant in the true sense of the word. I’m sure the mayor would find himself among many friends if he shared more of his pie. Great post! The humor is very relatable to our current Philanderer in Chief here in the New Knighted Stakes.


    1. I was thinking more of our own Boris Johnson, not so much in the terms of philandering, more in terms of the dodgy haircut and the fact that every time he opens his mouth he digs himself an even bigger hole to get out of !

      1. LoL. It seems most politicians are cut from the same tree. Whats worse is we elect them and they hold on forever. It does make for good comedy at times.

  2. So while an on-screen performance was going on, the Mayor was giving an off-screen performance of his own in the cinema.

    Helping himself to Mavis’ pie and then telling town council that everyone needs a bigger slice of the pie.
