When I found out there was such a thing as Ratcatcher’s Day, I had to make it a writing occasion. It celebrates the day the Pied Piper, having lured all the rats out of Hamelin with a magic piping ditty, got real steamed about not being paid and stole all the children.
Maybe celebrates isn’t the right word, actually. I know I’d be upset if someone took my beloved rats away. In any case, enjoy these dark microprompts, and please remember to tip your exterminators!
