The Unexpected Parcel

by Kev Neylon
Originally published by on 08/09/2017

David wasn’t expecting the large parcel on his doorstep. He dragged it inside and tore the cardboard from it.

It was a large picture. Upon seeing the image within the frame, his mouth gaped open; he was rooted to the spot, frightened beyond belief. His bladder let go as the ghosts of his father’s past caught up with him.

The picture was of Pol Pot. Disturbing enough by itself, but the speech bubble-shaped Post-it note stuck to the front of Pol Pot’s mouth made it even worse. Upon it were the bold typefaced words that said:


David fainted.
