The Parrot

Bookmark and Share
 
The café in our village has shut. The couple who ran it left
when their parrot died. They had kept the place open for it,
since it was a genial bird. The parrot called everyone who
entered "idiots" people laughed, no one took offence, or so
we all thought. But someone must have taken umbrage, it
was shot through the window when the café was empty.
Feathers everywhere, the village was shocked, who could do
such a shameful deed? The culprit, was a farmer, who had
drunk his coffee at the café for twenty odd years, and had
enough of being called an idiot. The moral of this sad tale,
if there is any: if you call a man an idiot long enough he will
end up being one.
