FROM ROCK! SWORD! FIRECRACKER! BY D. M. LARSON FREEDRAMA.NET
This monologue is adapted from a published play in the book "The Weird, Wild and Wonderful Days of School" ISBN-13: 978-1482739626 available from Amazon.com
You thought the game was rock, scissors, paper. You are wrong! The ancient game has been dishonored by scissors and paper. It is a mockery of the true art of the challenge. Shall I tell you the story? If you wish to hear the story, you must say, "Yes, Master." (Waits a moment) Now Say... "Pretty please with a cherry blossom on top." Fine. I will tell you the story.
(The master can pull out a scroll or book to help with the story. The book could be a giant popup book.)
It all began with the rock. Not the wrestler.No, the rock was a big fat lazy slob. But he was unmovable. He was a champion sumo wrestler because no one could move him. He won every match. And then he sent a challenge out to all warriors that no one could defeat him. So samurai and ninja from all over Asia came to fight him, but even a sword could not pierce his rock-like skin. But then a magician from a distant land came with a mighty weapon. A firecracker! No one had seen such a huge firecracker before. The magician faced off against the Rock. He lit the fuse and placed it at the Rock's feet. The Rock did not care. He did not think anything could defeat him. Suddenly, there was a huge explosion. There were screams and cries of pain. And when the smoke cleared, the Rock had fallen. Everyone stood quietly and couldn't believe their eyes. A few began to cry. The magician's laugh broke the silence and he pulled another, even bigger firecracker from his robes. The magician yelled, "I shall rid this land of the Rock forever!" He placed the firecracker next to the Rock and lit it. But then a young one, who was a big fan and collected all the Rock memorabilia, sprang in to action. He snatched up a sword and "swish", cut the fuse, saving the rock from destruction. (Master bows) So I ask that you no longer dishonor the game with scissors and paper.
(Master closes book or scroll and leaves.)
