DISCUSSION THREAD -- APRIL 2023 -- 75 Word Writing Challenge

I think I'll have a go at being @The Judge here for a moment. A liminal song:

There was a rich old king
who had a thousand men
He marched them up a hill one day
And marched them down again
And when you're up, you're up
And when you're down, you're down
And when you're only half way up
You're neither up, nor down.

(We sang this in Sunday School when I was a kid, the high light was standing up and sitting down in the bench as the song was sung. And the coup de gras was standing half way up. It's only been in recent years that I wondered if it was a bit bawdy. And only in the last year, maybe two that I heard the English version, "The Grand Old Duke of York.")

Really had to think on this one, and then I didn't even end up posting the story I worked on for three days! It was high on emotion but lacking in creativity. I went with something funnier, since last month I went with a more serious tone. I hope I hit the mark. If not, oh well!
