Sisyphus

I heard his footfalls, as I do everyday. He stopped in front of my cell as he does everyday. He smiled his evil smile and said, “Are you ready boy?”

Everyday I am given a task to complete. And if accomplished, I will be set free. However, the tasks are always inexecutable.

“Today,” said he, “I want you to write a story. It must be exactly seventy-nine words and have a plot and characterization.”

“Damn you to hell warden!”
