On Passing King Vertigas

Ferdenzango and his son walked along the path that led to the statue of King Vertigas.

Ferdie, Jr., was always awed by the statue.

“Who was he?” the son asked again for the hundredth time.

“Vertigas was a great king,” father replied, “who suffered years of indignities at the hand of the dark wizard, Messersmertz, who turned him into this stone statue.”

“Tell me again what the worst indignity King Vertigas suffered?” Ferdie’s eyes twinkled as he asked.

“It actually happened after he was turned into this statue.”

“And what was that, father?”

“Learning to live with the bird shit!”

  1. Randy, Good story with a funny ending. It seems that story’s been told many times before. The poor king having to suffer in life and coming to an undignified end. Good, well-written story. 🙂 —Susan
