·

thank you for contributing to the prize pool @deaconlee. That's really generous of you <3

·
·

You're welcome, this is a fun and easy contest and I like the idea. It looks like you might have a problem with spammers or users who are looking for a handout, but I'm sure that you will be able to find, or have found, ways to work around that. I will get busy and forget to participate though, so you need some way to remind everyone. 🙂

·
·
·

Thanks deaconlee. Haha, you're not wrong. Looks like I'm gonna be busy on payout day. I always check the rules are followed to make sure people aren't just sneaking in for a free squeeze ;)

And to think I loved you...

·

Excellent. Great story matches perfectly with the pic. Woohoo :D

·
·

Thanks @anjkara.... I'm a huge fan of #fiftywords which is tough, but 6 words is a whole new level!! :o)

·

Aww, so deep and sad. Nice job.

·
·

7 words, it is a FAIL

( I critiqued it in 6 :P )

·
·
·

mwahahahah that's awesome MBC! Great work, :D

·

Yes, as @minnowbootcamp noticed... you're one word over. Try a quick edit :D

·

Nice edit ;)

Another one?? Hmm, a theme makes it interesting and more challenging

Cool. Wish I understood US politics :P

·
·

Welp, we did that in 2016 in REALITY ;)

·
·
·

This is a black hole I rarely jump into anymore...if by electing an official who is on a daily basis signing anti-environmental laws, actively profiting off his position, flouting the rule of law by ignoring the point of his position, wrecking health-care, promoting division, and destroying democracy as we know it all while acting like an illiterate Buffon...then, I guess, the crime is Americans being dumb and he is our punishment.

·
·
·
·

Ah, so US politics is similar to the UK and most of Europe. I guess politics is a breeding ground for corruption and hypocrisy, as always.

·
·
·
·
·

lol, wherever you go, there politicians are, trying to get rich off your back. :)

@anjkara, this is certainly NOT as simple as it appears. Here is my attempt ...

Ate wounded baby's flesh. Renewed life.

·

Beautiful and true. I can't see the crime though :D

·
·

Isn't it a crime? 😅

·
·
·

haha I don't think it's a crime for a starving bird to eat dead flesh.
Do you? :P

·
·
·
·

You're right, it isn't a crime. Do I get a chance to rewrite it?

·
·
·
·

Thanks. That was interesting. I clicked on the link. I had no idea the Philippines were killing so many in its war on drugs. He's right about us (the UK) taking advantage of other nations when we were powerful. I don't think any war on drugs has ever worked though. It's usually just the government's way to make sure they get a big enough slice of the pie, and have a bit of a population cull while they're at it :S

·
·

Actually, most of the killer are the drug lords and their right hand or their trusted leader or pusher, cause they don't want to be in prison. They killed their minnows or their planktons that are surrendering to the government.

But there's an instance that some of the policemen doing that said thing.

they taking that advantage to kill drug users/pushers to be promoted or to received a reward.

Cause Mr. President told them there's a price on each head.

He became famous because he has the iron hand of justice.
"If you have sinned, then I will punish you."
"Do not try to destroy my country, and my youth or else I will kill you."

He is also famous on this Story: One day when he is the mayor of Davao City Southern part of the Philippines. There's one tourist who entered on a restaurant from Davao city and he smoked inside of the restau... we all know that there are rules and regulation about smoking in private and public place.

So then the owner tried to talk to the tourist but the tourist is so hard, and don't want to listen.

sadly to say, the late mayor of davao is close to the owner. So the owner called the late mayor and in just few minutes he came with a gun. He pointed to the tourist's in his one of the most very important body part hahaha!

and said to him, swallow it or loss your _______?

Then the tourist swallowed his cigar and Mr. duterte ask him if it's delicious, then he said it's delicious. Hahaha!

I loved her,

I lost her.

Image and words are mine.

Wow, what a powerful image. It goes so well with the story too. I wonder what your crime was?

·
·

Loving her was the crime since she had someone else.

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #42. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!

His crime questions, his reward punishment.

Lovely image. Wow. Ah the late Bronze/early Iron Age was a terrible time for torture. So many people were sacrificed this way. Still happens to this day, torture for having/sharing opinions that go against those in power. I'm reading about the gulags at the mo. They were torturing innocent people too, less than 100 years ago. Bloody humans, eh!

Is this your daughter or a young Anj? :D

·

My bet is on Baby ANJ ;)

·
·

LOLZ he's my 11-yr-old son. T hasn't kicked in yet XD hahah

·
·
·

Looks like his mama (for now!)

Mouthy like Mum too!!! LMAO!!! :D

·
·
·

Yeah, he's like me. Except his eyes are brown. :D

Aw thank you minnowbootcamp :D

I'd better pull my finger out and do a bit in the house :*(

Laters xx

·

Nice, very interesting. I wonder what the crime was. Did it cause Margaret's world to crash or was that karma for her crime? Hmmm :D

·
·

She stole all the world's Magic.

Fought for life, gone too soon.

·

Aw this is sad. Nice job. Lovely image too.

Thanks!
Sad, but one of life's realities. Had to face one :(

·

Thanks ^.^
Wooops! I downloaded it from here

Eliminate what doesn't help you evolve ♥

·

Eliminating does not help you evolve

That gives both crime and punishment

·
·

Maybe if you eliminate things that hold you back, you can evolve in a way.

What gives both crime and punishment?

Thanks for your comment :D

·

Nice. Remember the theme though -- Crime and punishment x

He did not aspire to much .. Most of what the boy wanted a spacious house to help him and his family .. And wife look with satisfaction and affection to him .. And young children run him joyful say Baba returned! From a simple job he loves and masturbates ..
His dreams remained suspended between heaven and earth

çok teşekkür ederim

I love the story but you went a bit over the 6-word limit here. We need to feel the story in 6 words. You've got 'oluru var mi' (Do you have a case) also written in the image.
