‘Young and Menace’- #FFF 40

Matt The Book Blogger is back with his prompt for this week’s Flash Fiction Foray, or #FFF.

This week’s edition will be on (drumroll please)… Fall Out Boy’s new song Young and Menace. This is quite a different song from the last few weeks; but I couldn’t help loving the bass drop – make sure to turn up the volume… Feel free to base responses of anything to do with the song, I always enjoy any different takes!

Another song I hadn’t heard before. Eerie and the video was a strange one!!! Oh well, here’s what I came up with!

Sometimes I wonder if I was actually born into this family, or if there was a mix up at the hospital…
I look at you all, with your Dresden doll looks, all blonde hair and fair skin, and then check myself in the mirror.
My naturally sun-kissed skin, and curly chocolate brown locks are a race apart from you.
You like bland food, I want something with a kick.
You listen to Pop, all I want is Gangsta Rap coursing through my earphones…
Then I remember Grandpa… He was the same, wasn’t he? A bit of a misfit, like me.

    Ooh I felt the influence of the music video in there! I particularly liked the descriptions and emphasis on the differences; along with the feeling that it’s what’s on the inside that counts! Thanks for taking part!

    Best wishes, Matt

    It is funny how some look so different although from the same family. My two older kids were dark blond and brown when they were little. But my youngest one was platinum blond for about 10 years. My youngest sister was also a blondie and us others were brown.
