It’s that time of week again, and this week there are six superb entries to take a look at, based on Panic at the Disco’s corker Death of a Bachelor-go to the link for the song.

The entrants were Ritu from But I Smile Anyway…  who described several of the disadvantages of marriage, but there was a twist in the tale at the close. Curtis Bausse took an interesting direction from the title, with some excellent character descriptions and a papal cameo. Sheldon Kleeman had some beautiful descriptive imagery. with tactful repetition to enhance his piece while Kritsa Yvonne-perhaps contradicting Basil Fawlty’s timeless advice “don’t mention the war”-had a moving piece about the importance of the past to the present day. blackcherriess wrote a romantic response, with an onomatopoeic opening and well crafted dialogue. Ladyleemanila similarly had an amorous take, with a similar scenario but a little more doubt in the mind of the characters…
