Writing Prompt – Creative Copy Challenge #606

This is a writing prompt. Bet you can’t do it! Take the 10 random words below and crush writer’s block by creating a cohesive, creative short story! And remember: after (if) you finish entering your submission into the comment field, highlight your words and click the bold button to make them stand out and help you determine if you forgot any words. (If you’ve missed previous writing prompts, we BET YOU CAN’T do those, either.) NOTE: Our bolding plugin is gone, so you’ll have to put before and after each of your challenge words if you want them to stand out, but NOT REQUIRED THOUGH! Or, as cleverly done by a CCC-er you can CAPITALIZE the challenge words in your piece.

1. Wishbone
2. Voyage
3. Tradition
4. Sail
5. Potato
6. Native
7. Meat
8. Leaves
9. Harvest
10. Delicious

    History, they say, is written by the victors. In this country, the TRADITIONS we’ve had handed down to us were likewise created by the victors. Some pious and pompous people set SAIL on a VOYAGE from their country, landed on a continent that was already owned by people NATIVE to that land from time immemorial. The newcomers had the audacity to “claim” the land and said that they now owned it. They had much better weapons and an inflated sense of their own racial superiority to anyone not from their part of the world. Ironically, these megalomaniacs probably would not have survived the first year on “their” new land without the help of the “inferior” natives. Once their larders had been filled and their strength rebuilt, they started on a Machiavellian course of betrayal, deception and murder of those who had made their very life there possible.
    So, when the LEAVES turn colors and we have our annual DELICIOUS HARVEST feasts, I — a descendant of the greedy European land-grabbers — wonder how many others are also ashamed of our forefathers’ actions in earlier times. MEAT and POTATOES, turkey and dressing are wonderful, of course, but what would Squanto and his people have to say if they got the wishing end of the WISHBONE? Maybe they would simply wish that they had minded their own business and let those inept, cruel bastards starve.
