Magog Rhys Petley: The Last Werewolf

Magog Rhys Petley: The Last Werewolf

Welsh werewolf British Labour MP Magog Rhys Petley sat in a pub drinking a strong whiskey soda.

He usually drank buttermilk as there was an antidote in buttermilk that counteracted the peculiar form of lycanthropy gene he had received ever since he was bitten more than 4 years ago by Rahu the demon responsible for lunar and solar eclipses in Hindu religious tradition.

As a result of that bite, he could occasionally turn into a werewolf even if there wasn’t a full moon.

But today Magog didn’t really care whether he turned into a werewolf or not.

Although he really should be happy.

He had spent most of his life as a backbench MP- whether Labour was the government or whether Labour was the opposition.

Being a far far Left MP and an out and out Marxist-Leninist had confined him to the back benches of the Labour Party particularly when Tony Blair was in power.

Now that fellow far Leftist Jeremy Corbyn was the new leader of the Labour Party, he was now the Party’s Foreign Affairs critic and sat on the Opposition front benches.

But Magog decided that he had been far happier sitting on the back benches.

Sitting on the front benches was much ado about nothing.

Besides nobody noticed when you ran out to the washroom when you sat on the back benches.

And recent Marxists elected to power were turning out to be a huge disappointment Magog thought to himself as he used his pub table candle to burn his personally autographed photo of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

Then over a week ago, his favourite cafe in Paris had been shot up by ISIS terrorists.

He was pretty sure that bullet holes in the windows would take away from the ambience of the place he loved so well.

And now Turkey had shot down a Russian war plane.

There was talk of world war in the corridors of Westminster.

Coincidentally, a Russian submarine had been spotted off the coast of Scotland a few days ago.

And swear words in Russian had recently appeared on the Twitter accounts of Russian naval sailors after they had discovered what were the ingredients in the Scottish haggis they had been eating all week.

The world was going to Hell in a hand basket, Magog thought to himself.

Turning into a werewolf really wouldn’t make much of a difference.

    Absolutely true. Turning into a werewolf really wouldn’t make much of a difference.
    This is dark times in a modern era, don’t you think?
    Every big cities for now in Germany are filled with both the police and military people, running around the place with rifles, guns … It is kind of scary. I don’t go to the city anymore like I used too, but the kids does when they go to the shopping mall.

    Speaking of which now Russian gets mad with Turkey and start another war?
    There are ISIS in the mid of it and came all others along. 😦

      That would be pretty scary going to the city and seeing soldiers and police all over the place with military style weapons.

      I’d avoid the city too, Sherrie.

      That must be a pretty scary experience. 😦

      I’ve just been watching a movie from 1939 with Norma Shearer and Clark Gable on Turner Classic Movies tonight.

      It was set in a hotel on the Italian-Swiss border on the eve of the Second World War.

      I decided to watch this movie instead of the news.

      And it was all about humanity’s search for love and truth and beauty and how it seems to become more pronounced and poignant and relevant in times of terror and imminent war.

      How war seems to bring out the best in some people and the worst in others.

        Speaking on war and WWII movies, I love to watch (over & over again) the Schindler’s List where in the darkest time people seems to find their humanity in the noble act of giving, helping, kindness and mecy, and even forgiveness.

        Every year at Christmas time, Schindler’s List will always appear on TV and I will always cry watching it besides some other good Christmas time films. I am so over sensitive! 😀

        Oh, my mother love Clark Gable! The love of her heart, she said – I remembered that when the first time we had black & white TV – that was “Gone With the Wind” and “Somewhere I’ll Find You.” So romantic. My mother thought he got a special moustache! hehehe …

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        You know Schindler’s List is a movie I’ve always wanted to see but I’ve never seen it.

        I remember years ago I was with my dad at a community dinner raising funds for Inner City schools in Edmonton.

        At the table where we sat, I spent a long time talking to an elderly Jewish woman.

        Before she left, she put her arm on my shoulder and patted it and said, “Do you know who you remind me of? Oskar Schindler.”

        Her granddaughter then smiled at me and whispered to me, “She was one of those rescued on Schindler’s list.”

        I always took that as the supreme compliment. 🙂

      • ѕнєяяιє ∂є ναℓєяια said,

        There are so few of them still lives – those who survived the war and the generation after. But Schindler’s List is one of the best war film I’d watched so many times over. Too few war films that does make sense like this one.

        It is nice for you to meet one of those who were to be involved in such life experience. I don’t mean it to be a good thing because on what they had went through are the most horrible nightmare one who won’t want it to every happen to you.

        But one can learn more from life itself, the experiences and knowledge.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Yes, one can learn a lot from their experiences.

        I suppose what makes Schindler’s List such a remarkable and unique war film is that most war films are about people fighting as a group- either an army battalion or an Air Force squadron or a naval crew whereas Schindler’s List shows the personal fight of a single person- a good man who happens to live in a society that has gone totally evil and despite living in the midst of that society, he somehow finds a way to do good and save many innocent lives in the process.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Have you read my blog post about Sherrielock Holmes yet, Sherrie? 🙂

      Introducing her as a full character to my vampire novel readers. 🙂

      • ѕнєяяιє ∂є ναℓєяια said,

        Guten Morgen from the Land of Potato & Hotdog! (Kartoffeln & Wurst) LOL
        Oh, I haven’t read it yet! I worked extra hours this week and the next week. After that, 2 months off – gladly … although I do love to work …
        But so much things to settle after …

        I’ll check this soon, Chris! Promise!
        **I’m soooo honored to be in your story.**

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Guten Nichten from the Land of Beer and Back Bacon (hangovercausen and cholesterolcausen)!

        That’s probably bad German but you can give your children a good laugh by telling them how Canadians speak German. 😀

        It was a delight having you in my story, Sherrie. 🙂

        You’re such an inspirational personality, you really should be in a novel. 🙂

  2. Nicholas C. Rossis said,

    I wonder if it’s too late for me to be bitten by a werewolf.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I don’t know, Nicholas.

      LOL !

      I suppose if you were a werewolf, no one would start a row with you if you were burning a personally autographed photo of Alexis Tsipras in an Athens taverna. 😀

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Ha ha – if you think doing so in Athens is hard (it isn’t, not any more), try doing so in Icaria 😉

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Icaria will be the place where brave werewolves shall go to prove their werewolfhood. 🙂

      • Nicholas C. Rossis said,

        Ha ha – especially if they stand in the middle of the town square and cry out, “I’m a neoliberal” 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Definitely an act of lunar madness even if there is no full moon. 😀

  3. Hyperion said,

    Magog seems to understand that ordinary life in extraordinary times can be a blessing in disguise. The sad thing for me is when Putin peels back the onion in Turkey and Syria he’ll find the rump of some very strange bedfellows sticking out of the middle. It should be no surprise, but still, who likes an onion that smells like @$$.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      No one that I’ve met.

      I wonder what sort of thanksgiving Turkey will arise in the next few days.

      • Hyperion said,

        The one with the monkey hair, no doubt. 😀

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Undoubtedly. 😀

        I’ve just posted the latest vampire novel chapter featuring the Black Hand- a character and a dismembered body part who hasn’t appeared in my novel for some months now. 😀
