#ThePush he remembered his yesterdays too much to ever be much of a banker but still he was there with a loan for the hungry & a mortgage for those who spent too long without a home count 173 #poetry #WritersPost #micropoetry #poetrycommunity

Not just another clown in a bowtie that’s the banker who’ll make the decision on us getting the boat, so don’t mock him! #oxj #ThePush³

They say he was head hunted, but really he was just hunted. He hated his instinct to hoard: it was why he'd always lived alone in the caves. Now he was forced to be head banker, everyone knew the dragon's secret: an incurable compulsion to hoard wealth. #vss #ThePush #AStoryADay

Today's #vss theme for #ThePush from me and @goosefat101 is 'banker'. Because we have a little money plant cutting called Banker Hugh the Money Plant, and I was just checking to see how he's doing. #AmWriting #WritingCommunity #Prompts

If I'd known all the facts, I wouldn't have decided to leave. If I'd known that no one would be able to see me, that I'd be powerless to stop anything from happening to my friends and family, I'd have stayed fully dead. Maybe I'd even be with them now. #vss #ThePush #AStoryADay

Today's #vss theme for #ThePush from me and @goosefat101 is 'decision'. Because I've pretty much made one but I'm not acting on it yet, so it still feels like I'm making it. #AmWriting #WritingCommunity #Prompts

The boy forgot to empty the bath, and the plastic bear saw his chance. He pushed the boat in and paddled as fast as he could to the other side, scrambling out before a parent could come. He didn't know that life would be better over here, but he hoped. #vss #ThePush #AStoryADay
