A happy story
by Wheelie Bin
I was walking home last night when I saw a man lying face down on the pavement.
At first, I was going to help the man up. But then I thought again . . .
Why is that man on the ground, I wondered? Why, it must be because he chose
to be on the ground. He prefers the ground no doubt - after all, when you are lying down, you can't fall over! So I had better not help him up.
But then another thought struck me. Maybe the reason he is on the ground is because he deserves
to be there. Yes maybe he did something bad or negative and the good righteous people of the world rightly punished him by knocking him on to the ground!
Yes, that was another possibility.
Either way, that person on the ground brought it on himself! So I did not offer him help; I just reminded him how he had got where he was.
By way of maintaining the status quo, I also gave him a kick as I was passing.
