It’s An Honour To Meet You, Mr President

Unedited piece from a prompt at a writing group.

You have a one minute meeting with the President of the United States of America.  What do you tell him?


It’s an honour to meet you, sir.  Thank you for agreeing to speak with me.  I know not everyone agrees with all your policies, but I just want to say that I wholeheartedly support what you said in that last speech.  One hundred percent.

Can I ask if you have plans to develop government support for the arts?  Especially in schools?  They are so important for developing confidence and communication skills in our young people.  So vital for the future of our great nation.

Oh, so they’re not high on your agenda at the moment?  Well, I’m truly sorry to hear that, sir.

Enjoy your evening at the theatre, Mr Lincoln.
