“A Beatle’s Wasteland”
‘How did I get myself into this mess?!’ he thought while trying to find beauty in his surroundings, with freeze burn on his toes.
His mind was frozen from the cold. And in this solitude, all he managed to do was to hum a tune to try and stay awake. All that came to mind in this ironic turn of events, was a song he used to sing with his friends under a starry night around the camp fire…
“We all live in a yellow submarine, yelloow suubmaariine, yeeellooow sub…mmaa….riiinee…”
And then he dosed off into the stars.
Okay, I admit, this was a little bit of a cheat, as I am borrowing 11 words from The Beatles’ song. *blushing*
I’m just warming up a little bit.
