Today’s prompt: Write a piece of prose around the word: “sirens”
This is my first time doing this and I am a couple of days late, which doesn’t bode well for the future, or even for the rest of this shambles.
Before the country wakes up the Conservative party Senior Siren Scheduler is hard at work rigging up hot panic buttons which link to the central press scrutiny office in the basement of number 10; their job to make a note of all the howlers mentioned on the various breakfast media over the country. In usual times, the network would be international, but in the present situation, with travel limited, they only deal in Britain, England specifically, the others have their own problems.
Behind a bank of desks sit the excusers, people wired on cheap coffee, whose job it is to try and come up with some excuse for the idiotic turns of phrase and assumptions the so called people in charge are making on a daily basis.
Once the faux pas are made a siren blasts out over the operatives, who all visibly scrunch up their shoulders, its always a surprise, especially with the coffee coursing through their veins.
The army of operatives is getting larger and larger as this virus continues, in an example;e of this government getting the economy going and providing jobs for the masses.
